2016 National Physical Education & School Sport Institute

For the past four years, the National Physical Education Institute has been able to assemble the leading “game changers” to bring about much needed reform within our profession. With the desire to reach more practitioners who are in a dual teacher-coach role, we have decided to add the words “School Sport” to the Institute. For 2016, we are honored to have another amazing line-up of keynote speakers and presenters who will challenge all of us to see how physical education is more than “just playing games” and where school sport is more than “just winning and losing.”

Why Attend the Institute?

As our thousands of past participants will point out, there are three important reasons why they continue to attend:

  1. There is no substitute for an excellent professional network. The practical and theoretical support found at this one-of-a-kind conference will improve your teaching practice and help you to connect with colleagues and experts from around the world.
  2. The focus on greater alignment to the written-taught-tested curriculum is a hallmark of this event for both participants and presenters.
  3. Using technology and other state-of-the-art instructional tools will make your teaching come alive for the students we serve.
