PE and Social Pedagogy Around the World. Webinar 1. Social Pedagogy and PE: Creating a Group Identity

Webinar series: PE and Social Pedagogy Around the World

The SPPA Special Interest Group (SIG) on Social Pedagogy, Sports and Physical Education(PE) led by Dr. Aspasia Dania, is pleased to invite the social pedagogy community to a new webinar series on PE and social pedagogy.  With an amazing group of speakers from Greece, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Brazil and the United States, these webinars will explore and discuss in an interactive way PE and social pedagogy in both theory and practice. 

We have five webinars planned, starting in October covering a variety of topics such as group identity, outdoor education, using games, after-school clubs and community and social justice. More info below. 

This event is free for members and supporters. 

Any donations will be greatly appreciated. We will use the money we raise to put on more social pedagogy events and projects.  This will help us reach our goal of building a social pedagogy community of practice across the UK and Ireland and recognising the value of social pedagogy in different fields, sectors and contexts by bringing together international perspectives.
