Let's Take Action - Together! 

Want to make a difference in kid’s lives through physical activity?  Join our Basin PLAYS - Physical Literacy in Schools Community of Practice today!

Communities of Practice (CoPs) are groups of practitioners who “share a passion for something they know how to do and who interact regularly to learn how to do it better” (Wenger, 2015).  The Basin PLAYS Physical Literacy in Schools CoP will offer a platform for educators and physical literacy practitioners to share ideas, evidence-based resources, projects and experiences.  This project page will allow space for multi-sector collaboration, big idea thinking and social innovation to take place.

The CoP will focus on providing information and practical tips on planning quality programs, assessment, leadership and training, promoting positive and active school culture, supporting diversity, equity and inclusion.  Members can post resources, share ideas, accomplishments, suggestions and engage in dialogue relevant to their topic areas of interest.  This project page will also house links to featured school projects, grants, information and Basin PLAYS reporting templates. 

The Basin PLAYS Coordinator will assist the CoP by posting resources, events, and providing member support. During the summer break we will be posting current evidence-based resources, upcoming grants and events.  In the fall, for members of the CoP project page and depending on interest, we will arrange virtual professional development workshops, forums and meet-ups.  To become a member simply sign up and click 'join' on this page.
