Grouping strategies: issues of ability, equity and participation – Canberra

May 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm AEST

Grouping stratgies workshop

Join Professor Dawn Penney from Edith Cowan University to explore mixed-ability class groupings in physical education.

While there is extensive international literature on different forms of ability grouping in physical education, particularly streaming by competency, mixed-ability classes has attracted comparatively little research attention.

Dawn’s research looks at the complexities and potential inequities that can result in mixed-ability groupings in PE classes. This presentation will look at the importance of grouping strategies in shaping understanding of ability in PE and influencing students’ opportunities for learning and participation.

Date: Thursday 16 May 2024
Time: 5 – 6.30pm
Venue: Canberra Grammar School, Primary School, 15 Alexander Street, Red Hill  ACT
