Given the new semester will be beginning soon for most of us, and the continued uncertainty and impending challenges associated with PETE in the COVID-19 era, we felt it important to focus this meeting of the collaborative on strategies and approaches for online and remote learning. The focus/title of the session is: Forward-thinking Solutions to Engaging Learners and Faculty within University PETE Fall 2020 and Beyond This PETE Collaborative was recorded on August 13, 2020
This podcast covers indigenous pedagogies. Dr. Laura Pipe from UNC Greensboro comes on to share a great session! Next week (ep 112) will be a follow up from this session where Ben Dyson continues on about indigenous pedagogies, specific to the Maori.
Dr. Pringle from Monash University joins to lead seminar 4.  His research and teaching is primarily within the broader sociology of sport and health/physical education fields and is underpinned by a critical interest to promote issues of social justice. Dr. Pringel is particularly interested in how people are shaped by the workings of power and how, in turn, power relations can be shaped by people. Through examining how power ‘works’, he's hopeful that we can make a positive difference in people’s lives, particularly in the contexts of sport, health and physical education, active leisure, ‘embodiment’ and exercise.
