Message from SIG Chair: Kevin Richards

SIG 93 Members and Colleagues

Over the last year our collective lives have been impacted extensively by the COVID-19 pandemic. For the in-service teachers, pre-service teachers, and youth with whom we work across health and physical activity contexts, this has meant major disruptions in programming and new stressors associated with virtual instruction. SIG 93 members have had to navigate new contexts and challenges in higher education, including the interruption of research and the movement of courses to online or alternative formats. It has also meant the cancellation of the 2020 AERA conference and the repositioning of the 2021 conference into a virtual format.

Through these difficult times, SIG 93 has remained committed to connecting with members while also trying to provide space and time to prioritize more immediate needs, locally. This has included our SIG 93 Virtual Seminar series that started in the fall of 2020 and will continue into the future as part of our annual SIG activities. SIG leadership has also been busy planning for the 2021 meeting and organizing the slate of amazing speaks we have lined up for this year. We will miss the opportunity to get together in person and share a beverage at the annual SIG social; however, we are excited about the opportunity to engage new and current members without the challenges presently associated with a place-based conference.

Take a few minutes to explore the expanding SIG 93 website and connect with us on Twitter (@AeraRlipe). If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions for SIG leadership, feel free to contact us. If you are new to SIG 93, please consider joining. We are here to work with you to promote a more favorable future for our SIG and the broader fields of health and physical education.
