A study, led by HKR's Dr. Michelle Kilborn, of physical education curriculum across Canada has found that while the curriculum's stated aims are focused on healthy active living through physical activity, the actual learning outcome statements focus primarily on movement skills, games and sport techniques.
Michelle Kilborn brought together several prominent international curriculum scholars at the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS) Conference in Ottawa on May 25-29, to pay tribute to Maxine Greene, one of the most significant educational philosophers of our time.
Dr. TA Loeffler named by Canadian Geographic as one of the country's top 100 "modern-day trailblazers".
A report released today explored the gaps and opportunities of healthy active living initiatives and programs for school-aged children and youth in Newfoundland.
