Since I have recently got back from AIESEP conference in Limerick I thought it would be interesting to share the conferences or CPD programmes you have attended and what ones have been most beneficial.
For me, as a teacher, the sports college conference was the best I attended. The conference contained small workshops, sometimes practical, facilitating lots of innovative practice to be shared which had actually been used in physical education departments. I often learnt little from one day courses that contained ideas that hadn't been tried and tested, didn't provide knowledge of how to apply them, were a repeat of what I learnt during my teacher training or courses that had little relevance to my school.
From a research perspective AIESEP has been the best. I learnt from educators worldwide and the conference has broadened my knowledge of physical education. Again, this conference had workshops, symposiums and lots of opportunities to discuss ideas, thoughts and innovations with those who have applied or supported teachers making changes to physical education.
