Conference - Physical Education and School Sport in Challenging Times
Thursday, 28th June 2012, 8:45am - 3:30pm
This 2nd Annual Conference, hosted by Edge Hill University's PE and School Sport Forum, is an opportunity for teachers, University lecturers and Higher Education students to share findings from both academic research and current school-based practice.
With cuts in government funding and a new National Curriculum looming PE and School Sport is undoubtedly facing a time of considerable change. This conference will discuss how the PE profession should react to such challenges both from a national and international perspective. Delegates are invited to just attend and/or contribute towards this general theme.
The programme includes lectures by keynote speakers, seminars delivered by university lecturers and school teachers, and opportunities for poster presentations.
