AIESEP Special Interest Group: Teaching Games for Understanding

Extended deadline to April 6, 2018.

Let’s Get Together!


This Special Interest Group is a globally representative group of associations and individuals committed to the promotion and dissemination of scholarly inquiry around games centered approaches to knowing, learning and teaching.  In addition to an international biennial conference, the SIG also organises a one-day symposium prior to the AIESEP World Congress. This opportunity is a great time to connect with our own professional learning community!

In Edinburgh, we invite you to participate in a one-day symposium:


Using TGfU to educate our students in inclusive and developmental ways

The symposium is open to all teachers, postgrad students, researchers, coaches, school sport coordinators.  The purpose of the day is to provide workshops and presentations on how enhance the quality of teaching and learning for all students through game centered approaches. As a community, our aim is to learn from each other and to share practice. 


Call for proposals

We invite interested participants to submit a presentation proposal for the symposium.  Presenters do not need to be also enrolled in the main World Congress. Proposals should outline the nature and title of the presentation. Proposals can be practical, conceptual, research-based, or panel discussions. We are also willing to support a poster session.  Sessions should fit into a 50-minute time slot.
