Sponsored by the Indiana State Department of Health Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity 

The OPEN (Online Physical Education Network) workshop is a FREE one-day workshop that will broaden and bolster the instructional capacity of physical activity and education with an in-depth look at the OPEN Source Curriculum Project. This is a professional development workshop for all physical educators, health educators, and before and after school professionals that work with grades K-12. With this, the trainers will provide resources, hands-on activities, and information on inclusive and adapted play. This activity-based training will focus on easy ways to engage students and teach lessons that ensure academic rigor and inspire movement. Each activity is based on the SHAPE America National Standards and Learning Outcomes. Each participant will be provided access to resources and tools to improve the health and well being of their students.
We will be offering TWO *Adapted PE workshops with a primary focus on children with special needs, including information and resources on adapted and inclusive play and THREE General K-12 PE workshops focusing on physical education and physical activity for all youth. 

*Adapted PE Workshop Information: Take an active, in depth look at all things Adapted PE!
