Movement, Pleasure & Pedagogy | Dr. Susie Stevens
Our guest's Twitter bio reads: "Ph.D. in pleasure. Yes, you read that correctly. Board Director Physical Education New Zealand. Lecturer. Volunteer. Educator. Doing some cool projects. Cheeky." Dr. Susie Stevens is all of these things and more. This episode was one of the most fun I have ever recorded. Alongside the laughs come some pretty deep and insightful messages around changing the way that we look at teaching physical education.
The Role of Health in Physical Education
What is the best way to teach health in schools? This complex issue is one that the physical and health education community has been struggling to find an answer to for some time. It is my hope that this podcast will provide you opportunity for thought, as we explore the role of health in physical education. And consider whether physical education teachers even have a responsibility to teach health at all? Join me for this very special episode of the PhysEdcast, featuring Mikael Quennerstedt, Holly Alperin, Sarah Benes and Andy Milne as we explore the role of health in physical education.

The Future of #PhysEd | Jarrod "The PE Geek" Robinson
A deep dive into what makes "The PE Geek" tick and his vision for the future of physical education. Jarrod and I discuss his philosophy of technology in PE as well as the positives and negatives to come out of COVID-19.
Jarrod is a Physical Education teacher from country Victoria Australia, with a passion and enthusiasm for the role emerging technologies play within teaching and learning. He is first and foremost an advocate for lifelong movement and physical activity, however realises the power of 21st century technologies that can shape new age teaching pedagogies.
Jarrod is known throughout the online community as “The PE Geek”, and authors a blog of the same name at www.thepegeek.com which has proved to be an invaluable resource for teachers seeking effective use of 21st century tools in PE. He has presented Nationally and Internationally for over 8 years, running workshops in over 30 countries.
His major interests lie within mobile learning which he believes is the perfect fit for the outdoor minded PE Teacher. As a result he has begun his own mobile development company, “The PE Geek Apps”, which builds mobile applications for teachers on both Android and iOS devices. His mobile applications have also won numerous awards throughout Australia and Overseas.
He is also the founder of the ConnectedPE Conference & ConnectedPE Community which is working to change the way that professional development is delivered.
Great idea to create these podcasts. PD doesn’t necessarily have to be a week long workshop. It can be something as simple as driving somewhere while listening to a podcast. Hearing the perspectives of other high quality people in our field will undoubtedly help you to become more reflective in your own practice. High five to Artie for all of his work so far for regarding PD for PE.
