ISBS Teacher's Day

ISBS Teacher's Day


You’re invited!

The organisers of National Biomechanics Day and the 36th International Society of Biomechanics in Sport Conference are hosting a day-long workshop exploring ways to teach biomechanics in the classroom.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to learn new teaching strategies for incorporating biomechanics into their curriculum.

What will be achieved?

Teachers will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with leading biomechanics instructors/researchers from across the world. There will be a focus on creating hands-on experiential learning opportunities to achieve science and physical education outcomes (TKI levels 5-8).

Specific topics include:

  • Balance and stability
  • Projectile motion
  • Force summations
  • Levers
  • Newton’s Law’s
  • Momentum (angular, impulse and torque)

When and where will it take place?

The workshop will run from 8am to 3pm on Monday 10th September 2018. All activities will be conducted in the cutting edge research facilities at AUT-Millenium Institute.

How much does it cost?

The workshop will cost $85 per attendee if you register before Tuesday 10th July. After 10th July, it will cost $110.  The cost includes morning tea and lunch, plus summary details from the presenters and designed activities from the interactive workshop.

We encourage teachers from outside of Auckland to attend. There will be 20 $300 travel scholarships available to help reconcile costs associated with flights and accommodation.
