Physical Literacy 301 - Pre-conference Workshop
Integrating Physical Literacy Into Your Programming
In this interactive session participants will learn how to incorporate physical literacy into their practice and programs through effective methods and delivery of enriched activities into a variety of settings. The activities can be easily implemented by a coach, physical educator, generalist teacher, recreation leader or parent. Physical literacy will be discussed as a means to enhance movement, increase active participation, as well as to reduce risk of injury.
