"Innovation, inspiration, and inclusion in games-based teaching and coaching
Venue: The University of Auckland, New Zealand
Date: 8-11th December 2024
Over the course of this conference, we will delve deep into the innovative strategies, technologies, and methodologies that harness the intrinsic power of the game-based approach to enhance learning, skill development, and games education. Our program features a diverse array of speakers, interactive workshops, panel discussions, and research presentations, offering you opportunities to explore the latest trends, share insights, and network with like-minded professionals. Our theme captures the idea that we want to explore the concept in a broad way, and create a vibrant and rich opportunity to share, discuss, and experience the latest research and practices by examining past developments in teaching and coaching.
Whether you are a teacher, a sports coach, a curriculum designer, or simply curious about the intersection of play and learning, this conference promises to be a platform for inspiration, collaboration, and the exchange of ideas. Join us as we unlock the full potential of game-based teaching and coaching in shaping the future of education and sports development.
The conference is targeted at three key audiences: teachers, coaches and academics. The academic programme will be held over 3.5 days, with options for delegates to present oral presentations, workshops, posters and symposia. During the event we intend running a one-day series of workshops for teachers on one day, and another series for coaches on another day. We currently have committees established to explore what the nature and content of these days may look like so stay tuned for more information.
The venue will utilize the facilities at the University of Auckland (City campus). We anticipate our new Sport and Recreation stadium will be completed in August 2024, and our conference will be the first major event to use this facility.
At present the Call for Abstracts is planned to be opened at the end of January with the close at the end of May. Further details outlined on the "Call for abstract page".
