#PhysEdSummit TGfU Presentations – Retro Badge

Here will be the listing of all TGfU presentations that have been presented on during a #PhysEdSummit. Please enjoy the learning experience and remember if you watch three different TGfU sessions, then you will earn a #TGfU retro badge for the 2017 #PhysEdSummit!

#PhysEdSummit 1.0 with Mel Hamada

Teaching Games for Understanding
Session Description:  The benefits of using Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) in PE classes and what change this brings for teachers and students and the ways in which teachers have to change the way they teach from traditional learning in PE.  The addition of questions (how we ask questions to our students, types of questions and when we ask them) and looking for learning in the classroom through Visible Thinking Routines (VTR) has the power to really see what your students are thinking and how they view the conceptual learning in PE.  VTRs are for every classroom (not just PE) but they can really have powerful affects on the learning in PE and for team discussions – a great tool to add to your repertoire

#PhysEdSummit 2.0 with David Moore

Teaching Games for Understanding Part 2

Session Description: My session will look at using TGFU/game sense approach as a way of teaching concepts as opposed to a skill based program. I will look at how sports can be taught through TGFU and how we can assess students on using a concept in games/sports. I will also touch on how the concepts/games can be transferred through different sports/contexts.

#PhysEdSummit 3.0 with Adam Metcalf

Maximize Student Engagement: TGfU/Sport Ed Hybrid Units

Session Description: This session will showcase some simple and effective strategies to incorporate TGfU (Teaching Games for Understanding) and Sport Ed concepts to enhance student engagement, creativity, and teamwork skills. These strategies can be applied to several different types of sport/activity units from late elementary to high school.

#PhysEdSummit 4.0 with Kelly Ann Perry

Part One: An Overview of the TGfU Model–Putting the Why Before the How

Session Description: This session will provide an overview of how the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) model can be applied to practice with a focus on the four guiding pedagogical principles

#PhysEdSummit 4.0 with David Gutiérrez Díaz del Campo and Kelly Ann Parry

Part Two: Game Modification for Learning Tactical Concepts in Invasion Games

Session Description: This session will provide practitioners with ideas on how to develop the four pedagogical principles of TGfU. In particular, the session will focus on how to set up the learning environment and designing games using these pedagogical principles to “get a good game going.” This session will develop ideas from Part One: An Overview of the TGfU Model, and provide a link to Part Four: Developing Questioning When Teaching Using TGfU.

#PhysEdSummit 4.0 with Heidi Bohler and Dr. Stephen Harvey

Part Three: Game Modification for Learning Tactical Concepts in Net/Wall Games

Session Description: This session will provide practitioners with ideas on how to develop the four pedagogical principles of TGfU. In particular, the session will focus on how to set up the learning environment and designing games using these pedagogical principles to “get a good game going.” This session will develop ideas from Part One: An Overview of the TGfU Model, and provide a link to Part Four: Developing Questioning When Teaching Using TGfU.

#PhysEdSummit 4.0 with Adam Metcalf

Sport Education/TGfU Hybrid Units

Session Description: Maximize student engagement, tactical understanding, and motivation using Sport Education and TGfU instructional models.  This presentation will give you some practical solutions and resources to create a sustainable system of these two student-centered instructional models for your Physical Education program.  While an “event driven” Sport Ed unit can be exciting and memorable, an overcomplicated unit can result in an enormous amount of planning and management; often leading to teacher burnout and a decrease in student engagement. Adapting TFfU tactics with a simplified Sport Ed framework can help to provide dynamic units that can be repeated without being overcomplicated.

#PhysEdSummit with Dr. Steven Harvey

Part Four: Developing Questioning When Teaching Using TGfU

Session Description: Despite the development of a wide body of literature suggesting the efficacy of TGfU to teaching and learning, a range of challenges face teachers and coaches taking up TGfU. Light (2013) suggests that one of the most significant challenges is the effective use of productive and generative questioning. This presentation will offer insight into how practitioners can operationalize the use of questioning through the provision of theoretically grounded practical examples that will assist practitioners in their implementation of TGfU.

2016 #PhysEdSummit with Joanna Sheppard

Teaching Games for Understanding: With a Little More Feeling

Session Description: Are you interested in using different teaching methods within your physical education classes? By the end of this workshop, elementary teachers will gain an understanding of how to implement the Teaching Games for Understanding Curriculum model within their classes with specific focus on the cognitive and affective domains of our students through effective open ended questioning. Specific game play examples will be used and discussed.
