Oregon SHAPE

Written by Dr. Dean Kriellaars

The Oregon SHAPE conference has just wrapped up in Bend, and I was inspired by the participants so I thought I would follow up with a newsletter piece. I was honored to provide three conference sessions – one session on “what is physical literacy and now it might be a stepping stone to active participation”, the second on using physical literacy to enhance performance of athletes, as well as enhancing “durability” of participants, and the third was a workshop on “what does a quality physical literacy experience look like in PE class?”. The links to the powerpoint presentations can be found here.
