This GAA Teacher Summer Course is a blended course using the Association's Learning and Development Community Portal available at www.learning.gaa.ie/. The face-to-face element runs over three days with approximately eight hours on online modules to be completed thereafter.
Being largely a practical course , it aims to introduce teachers to Gaelic games - hurling, Gaelic football, camogie, ladies Gaelic football, handball and rounders. The main objective of the course is the advancement of teachers' pedagogical, teaching, learning and management skills in the context of the primary school physical education (PE) curriculum. Courses are organised by Local Education Centre's under the remit of the Department of Education and Skills. The courses are delivered by GAA Games Development staff and tutors.
Furthermore participants will develop the ability to delivery elements of the PE curriculum through the medium of Gaelic games. An emphasis on numeracy and literacy programmes highlight the opportunity to integrate PE through a teaching curriculum by using the various resources developed by the GAA.
