The Health and Physical Education faculty at Georgia State University is excited to offer our first Model-Based Instruction (MBI) Workshop for teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and teacher education faculty on July 12-14, 2012. The workshop will be held on GSU's campus in downtown Atlanta. Participants who need lodging can stay in one of our award-winning, suite-style dorms--a short walk from the workshop site and many downtown attractions like the King Historic Area, the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center, The World of Coca-Cola, and Centennial Olympic Park.
Workshop participants can choose from three tracks: MBI for Elementary Physical Education, MBI for Secondary Health and Physical Education, or Teaching MBI in Teacher Education Programs. The third track is intended for faculty who instruct at the college level and wish to learn how to teach MBI to their undergraduate and graduate students.
Teachers and students who attend the workshop will be introduced to several instructional models for each grade level and get practical experience in planning and implementing each model. Strategies for assessment and the inclusion of students with wide ranges of learning abilities will be covered for each model.
Teacher educators who attend the workshop will be shown how to teach MBI to undergraduate and graduate students. A large selection of materials for teaching MBI will be provided in this track, including course syllabi, peer-teaching assignments, video samples of many models, and student teaching assessments that focus on using MBI in school settings.
