The IPPEA in conjunction with the Department of Arts Education and Physical Education in Mary Immaculate College were delighted to host Dr. Donneta Cothran for a workshop on the topic of behaviour management in PE.  Dr. Cothran is professor and associate chair kinesiology at Indiana University USA and has published widely in the field of physical education.  This workshop provided the student teachers with practical strategies and activities on how to teach social skills, resolution skills and anger management through the medium of physical education.   Dr. Cothran’s excellent presentation along with practical activities and resources from the workshop are now available for downloading in the member’s area.
