Pre-Service Teacher Webinar Series

Physical and Health Education Canada is excited to launch a new webinar series for pre-service teachers. Presented by leaders in the sector, the goal of this series is to provide pre-service teachers with opportunities for professional development, to be better equipped to tackle issues in today’s classrooms, and to foster lively discussions and engagement with our audience. Each session is 60 minutes long, and covers an important topic in the health and physical education classroom, but that isn’t necessarily covered in detail in education programs.
