Course Description

The Additional Basic Qualification Course: Health and Physical Education, Intermediate Division is designed to examine the main components of HPE by examining current research and teaching practices. Educators will establish confidence in knowing and understanding the HPE curriculum, identify and understand their role as a leader in HPE, understand and integrate Ontario Ministry of Education initiatives, attain a higher level of skill development and strategic awareness in sport, and apply higher-level thinking in order to develop their own vision of Health and Physical Education.

Teachers will be required to examine research and resources, collaborate and reflect with colleagues and demonstrate/ articulate the ability to reflect, critique and assess their own development as a Health and Physical Education Teacher.  Teachers will complete a weekly assignment, as well as a reflective journal entry / online discussion group entry(s) based on the week’s learning content.  The purpose for these entries is to provide an opportunity for the teacher, as a learner, to gather and develop their own ideas and understandings to build as a leader in Health and Physical Education.
