Masterclass: Teaching personal and social responsibility through PDHPE

November 28 @ 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm AEDT

PDHPE Masterclass group of teens

Our Masterclass series explores the latest health and physical education research. We offer 8 Masterclasses each year.

Masterclass #8 2024:

Respectful relationships and social responsibility are key issues. How can we develop students’ skills in these areas through our PE programs? 

The Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility (TPSR) Model was developed by Don Hellison (2011) to ‘teach’ rather than ‘tell’ students how to be respectful, care for others, participate and put effort into tasks, be effective leaders and transfer this learning to their lives outside of school.  The model promotes self and social responsibility by empowering students to take more ownership for their actions and lives, and by teaching them to be concerned about the rights, feelings, and needs of others.  

Dr John Williams will share two research studies that use the TPSR model to teach personal and social skills and responsibility. Learn practical ways to translate study findings into your PE lessons.
