Connected Quality PE
How are all the activities we do in our physical education classes connected? What exactly is “best practice” and how should I make sure that I am providing my students with a well rounded physical education experience? Join Nathan Horne, as he challenges you to think about what quality physical education looks like and how all the little things we do connect together to give our students the best chance at being confident and competent movers long into their adult years. In this keynote Nathan will share his thoughts on how we can connect the dots to create quality physical education for our students.
