Gwen Weeldenburg is a physical education teacher educator, educational designer and researcher at the School of Sport Studies at the Fontys University of Applied Science and PhD student at the University of Technology Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Her teaching and research interests mainly focus on teaching games, motivational learning climate, curriculum development, assessment and teacher education within the context of physical education. She is also author of the Dutch book Spelinzicht (Game Insight; Weeldenburg, Zondag, De Kok; 2016; 2017; 2020) in which the learner- and game-centred pedagogy to teaching games - Game Insight Approach - is explained and illustrated by numerous target-, striking/fielding-, net/wall- and invasion game activities.
In 2013 we established the national Network Teaching Games (NTG) to promote game-based approaches in the context of school-based physical education and sport in the Netherlands. One of the main goals of out network is to provide a platform for PE teachers and sport coaches to discuss and share good practices concerning game-based approaches. On regular basis we organise conferences, masterclasses, symposia and workshops at our university to achieve these goals.
