The AIESEP Specialist Seminar 2022 Motor Competence Assessment in Educational Settings will take place on 28th-30th September 2022 in Brixen – Italy.

The event, jointly organized by the Universities of Bozen, Hamburg, and Jyväskylä, will be hosted by the Faculty of Education of the Free University of Bozen (Brixen campus).

The aim is to bring together experts in motor skills and physical fitness assessment and monitoring, as well as related disciplines. The seminar intends to create a space for reflection and discussion on how to conduct, analyse, interpret, and use motor competence measures in educational settings while ensuring quality education at each level of schooling and in youth grassroots sport.

One of the outcomes of the seminar will be an AIESEP position statement on best practices in motor competence assessment.

In addition, the seminar will provide a unique opportunity for experts to present the status of motor competence assessment in their countries/regions, to network, to explore possibilities for joint collaborations, and to plan common research agenda.

The International Association for Physical Education in Higher Education ( AIESEP ) 2022 World Congress addresses contemporary agendas for sustainable, socially just and inclusive Health and Physical Education (HPE), Physical Activity (PA) and Sport. The AIESEP community understands that HPE , PETE , PA and Sport are continuing to adapt to COVID conditions which challenge our knowing, being and doing across all levels of policy, curriculum and professional practice. This World Congress encourages exploration of the longer term challenges and opportunities that are emerging in different national, cultural and professional settings. A consequence of our adaptation to COVID is to push the boundaries of a “new normal” by offering a hybrid in-person and online conference.

Griffith University is proud to be the Gold partner with AIESEP to bring you the AIESEP 2022 World Congress.


Abstract Submission is OPEN and closes Jan 21 2022

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to challenge scholars around the world to rethink and reimagine the way they connect with others and share their research. Given the ongoing uncertainties associated with the pandemic, the AIESEP 2022 World Congress will be run in a hybrid format. In choosing this format, our goal is to give delegates the confidence of knowing the event will go ahead, no matter what. Every session will be simultaneously in-person and online. Delegates able to travel to the Gold Coast will be able to participate in the conference on the Griffith University campus, and those who aren’t will be able to participate online from the comfort of your home or office (you might even push the hybrid format further by organising your own local conference hubs!). To accommodate the complexities of multiple timezones, the Congress will be programmed using a rotating schedule designed to maximise the number of presentations overseas delegates will be able to attend (and maximise the amount of time in-person delegates can spend at the beach). The registration fees in each category (e.g., member, non-member, student, etc.) will be the same for online and on-site delegates, which we hope provides you with flexibility amidst frequent changes to national and state border restrictions and institutional travel regulations. Although we’re sad we won’t be able to see all of you in-person, we’re excited to connect with you all at the Congress in whatever form your participation is able to take, and to explore the possibilities this hybrid format affords. For more information about the Congress go to the conference website, and check out our Twitter account, @aiesep2022, for all the latest news.
