The Physical Literacy Journey

Margaret Whitehead
08:30 to 09:30
President of the IPLA

This lecture will look at #MoveLearnLive from a physical literacy perspective.

Join Margaret to hear her journey of developing the concept of physical literacy. This is based on the view that physical activity is both valuable in itself and can contribute to holistic development. As we move, we learn about ourselves and about the world. As teachers of physical education we have the opportunity both to inspire students to further their physical literacy journey, and to foster human flourishing.

Here we are in Vienna, which has a proud history of philosophical thought – no better reason to look at our work as physical educators from a philosophical perspective.
