7th International Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) Conference

The TGfU Conference 2022 will be a world-leading, international, inclusive event for all teachers, sports coaches, academics, researchers, pre-service teachers and students interested in games-based approaches (GBA).

Celebrating 40 years since Bunker and Thorpe’s (1982) seminal publication, the 7th international conference is coming back to the UK for just the second time.  We will celebrate the work of TGfU and GBA practitioners from across the world.  We already have commitments from over 30 different countries spanning Europe, Australasia, South America, North America, Asia and Africa.

TGfU2022 will also feature cutting-edge content for practitioners, students and academics.  Specifically, this event will impact the advancement of games-based approaches through a particular focus on inclusive sport, scientifically-informed approaches, technologically-advanced practice, teacher/coach education and cross-cultural domains.
