Any teachers reading this blog post who have not heard of PEPLC (a Physical Education Professional Learning Community) need to check out www.peplc.net at their earliest convenience. There is still room to join this professional development initiative and doing so is guaranteed to deepen your instructional practice.
Essentially, PEPLC is about setting professional growth goals and working toward these goals on different learning teams with other practitioners interested in the same learning themes. This blog post is not so much about explaining what PEPLC is as it would require a much more detailed explanation.
The purpose of this blog post is to ask you to reflect deeply on any burning issues that you have related to your practice. What is it that you feel that you need to learning more about in order to deliver quality phys-ed lessons for your students? PEPLC has 5 different learning themes, so I ask that you reflect on these 5 themes and think about any questions, uncertainties, issues, thoughts, or ideas that you have related to these 5 themes.
Innovation & Technology
Curriculum & Programming
Leadership & Mentoring
Feel free to write these issues, thoughts, uncertainties etc. in the comment box below this blog post. I will take your comments forward to specific PEPLC learning teams who can discuss and help to answer the questions for you and provide you with valuable insight into what you may be searching for. Professional development in an ongoing and continuous sense so to speak.
Please leave your email as I will follow up with you once your comments have been addressed by the different PEPLC learning teams out there.
