Embedding Active Pedagogy into Teacher Education targeting Mathematics: Transform-Ed!


Low levels of physical activity and high levels of sedentary behaviour are widespread public health issues, pervasive in schools. Teacher education is pivotal to school and educational reform, but an under-studied setting for physical activity and sedentary behaviour research. The overarching aim of this research (Transform-ED!) is to investigate the impact of incorporating an evidence-based active pedagogy targeting Maths education, on the teachers’ capacity to increase children’s physical activity, reduce sitting time and improve academic-related outcomes.

: This workshop aims to provide an insight into evidence and findings around Transform-ED! as well as a comprehensive and interactive practical application of the active pedagogy used in the maths unit.

Although the session is focused on the Primary Years curriculum, it would be suitable for all maths educators as it will provide innovative, dynamic and evidenced-based activities and resources that could be used in primary, secondary or tertiary maths education.
