Guy is an Adjunct Professor at the School of Physical Education, Physiotherapy and Dance (ESEFID) at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). Professor of the Postgraduate Program in Human Movement Sciences at ESEFID/UFRGS. Coordinator of the Laboratory for Multidisciplinary Studies in Sport (LEME). Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education at São Paulo State University (UNESP) (2009). Master and Doctor in Human Development and Technologies at UNESP. His main research topics are: Sport Pedagogy, Pedagogical Practice, Game centred approach, Sport Education model, Net/Wall Sports, Invasion Sports and Athletics. He is responsible for the discipline of TGfU and Sport Education in postgraduate courses (master's and doctorate). He also teaches game-centred approaches in the undergraduate Physical Education course. He participated in the development of teaching materials about sport, based on game-centred approaches. One of the materials is from the federal government's “Programa Segundo Tempo” (Second Time Programme). The other is material for Physical Education classes from a Brazilian Educational Institution with units throughout the country.
Brazil has excellent researchers in Physical Education and Sport. Some of them study, research and develop game-centred approaches. Others study and research TGfU. However, the country still lacks materials on TGfU in Portuguese. In this sense, I hope that my participation in the IAB can:
Disseminate knowledge and studies about TGFU and game-centred approaches to Physical Education teachers and coaches;
Teach TGfU and game-centred approaches for undergraduate and graduate students;
Promote sport initiation TGfU and game-centred approaches;
Coordinate research on TGfU and game-centred approaches in the Brazilian context;
Bring together Brazilian researchers investigating TGfU and game-centred approaches.
