This course is entitled “Teaching Fundamental Movement Skills in PE Through Tag Rugby” .
The IRFU has been rolling out its teacher training programmes with over 200 teachers taking part across four venues so far last season. Designed initially by Derek Maybury, Coach Development Manager with Leinster Rugby, along with Rugby Development officers in the province to help integrate fundamental movement skills into PE sessions, the course has now been taken on by the IRFU and rolled out across a number of the venues across Ireland.

The course, ran in conjunction with the Department of Education and is seen as a  natural way of increasing the sustainability of the highly successful ALDI Play Rugby programme where schools receive interactions from the provincial staff along with access to online coaching resources. All teachers that take part in the summer courses also receive an ALDI Play Rugby pack for their school.  Largely practical based, the course examines Fundamental Movement Skills, Fundamental Games Skills and Game Specific Skills. There is be an emphasis on pedagogical skills, teaching methodologies and class management skills building on existing knowledge in PE to allow teachers to adapt lessons to pupil’s interest or to include children with special educational needs. It also highlights ways to integrate numeracy, literacy & SPHE programmes in a co-curricular way.

 This creative summer course by PDST TiE, in conjunction with Cavan Education Centre, will introduce teachers to the skills involved in the filmmaking process as they work towards creating their very own short film. Each course module is designed to encompass a hands-on approach to learning and mirrors the process, step by step, that participants can use when undertaking filmmaking in their own classrooms. Participants will be guided through the filmmaking process, while also learning how this may be applied to a classroom setting to support and enhance pupils’ literacy development across the curriculum. Throughout the week, participants will gain insight into the range of skills associated with filmmaking which their pupils can develop through the effective use of digital technologies, such as those associated with planning a shoot, capturing footage and editing. Content in this course shall also focus on the Fís Film Project, a highly successful film project for primary schools that explores film as a medium of expression in relation to the arts, and introduces children to aspects of the filmmaking process. Here, useful resources as well as examples of note for use in the classroom, will be discussed and explored.

19CN02SPACE LEARNING IN ACTION

Facilitator: Kieran McTigue

Venue: Cavan Crystal Hotel,Dublin Road, Cavan.  

DATE: Tuesday 12th February 2019   (Evening):07.00pm – 09.00pm

The workshop will introduce Spaced Learning to teachers and educators. Spaced Lerning is an approach to learning that is based on recent neuroscientific research which aids memorisation of information in a more effective manner. Research has found that approaches such as Spaced Learning aid in improved memory recall and retrieval, making it an excellent methodology for use in the classroom. Owing to the more effective use of time in the classroom, more varied approaches and methodologies could be utilised, namely, walking debates, hot seat, project work, creativity/artwork, etc.The approach can be used across a range of subjects and offers an effective, fun and interactive approach to learning.  In particular, it has proven effective in expanding the educational experience of learners by offering them an opportunity to explore more novel and interesting ways of learning. Included in this are students who may hitherto have been disengaged in learning but also those students who wish be challenged more in their learning.  

Early this year, Kieran completed the Professional Diploma in Entrepreneurial Education in UCD. The course – run through the university’s Innovation Academy – is designed for educators who want to explore new ways to teach and facilitate learning. Over the course of the Diploma, participants completed and submitted a research project  in part fulfilment of the requirement for the Diploma. For his research project, he chose to focus on a relatively recent yet innovative area in education, namely, Spaced Learning – using neuroscience in the classroom. Due to the very positive feedback received and interest generated, the Innovation Academy suggested he contact the various education centres to give a presentation on this particular approach to interested teachers.
