Teaching Physical Education and Health Remotely


Tips & strategies for successfully teaching health and physical education from home

Target Audience:

This course has been designed for K-12 physical educators and health teachers, before or after school personnel and classroom teachers responsible for teaching health or physical education. It is also is intended for those who 1) are required to teach physical education remotely due to a local or national emergency 2) who want to learn how to enhance their physical education and health programs through online instruction.

Course Description:

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 changed how we teach and the way students learn in an instant. With no adequate time to prepare for taking physical education and health online, many teachers did not have the tools, knowledge, and resources to take this task on. This course is designed to help teachers teach more effectively and efficiently in an online situation, so students are engaged and learning to their maximum ability.

Through this course, you will be taken through how to adapt subjects to teach them remotely, various online teaching and learning platforms, and how to use them. The class will also cover online communication tools and methods to use and how to use them, digital assessment strategies, online student engagement tools, and best practices for online learning and teaching. This course will let you do your best teaching in unimaginable circumstances, and you will walk away from it, having designed your own online lesson using the tool that best fits your students' needs. This class is a practical one to help you not only make distance learning genuinely work, but to show you that you can use what you learn here to enhance your instruction if you are not teaching from home.

This course will take approximately 15 hours to complete. You can purchase 1.5 CEU's if you wish from Adams State University
