Dublin City University (Susan Marron and Frances Murphy) and Munster Technological University (Jackie Gallagher) are partners in a European project to promote inclusion in primary physical education classes for all children, with a focus on children with additional needs.
The Erasmus+ funded project has developed an online resource highlighting practices, strategies and resources to support teachers to include all children in primary PE lessons.
In partnership with the Irish Primary PE Association, 20 Irish teachers participated in a workshop on DCU’s St. Patrick Campus on Saturday 12th June, the first of a series of European teacher professional workshops, to officially launch the online resource and to share practice. The event was also attended virtually by European partners and the European PE Association members who could observe the engagement of teachers with the resource and their collaborative work to share practice in the sports hall environment.
