Raising the Bar on Child and Youth Action Research in Physical Literacy

Presenters: Dr. Dwayne Sheehan and Sue Scott

This session provides an overview of physical literacy and the role that recreation facilities can play in helping children and youth develop a positive attitude about being active for life. It also introduces a long term collaborative research initiative that involves two Alberta universities. The study will examine how recreation centres can use scientific evidence to improve facility design, programming, and staffing to help increase physical activity levels among children and youth.
