Professor Thomas Lowrie, Centenary Professor, Education (The University of Canberra)
Institutes and academies of sport have always had an educative function in support of athletes, coaches and support personnel. NSOs are also in the business of providing educational support to members, as well as their athletes and coaches. Approaches to education in our high performance system vary, and unfortunately the view that anyone can teach with the slick use of Powerpoint slides remains a common assumption. Professor Thomas Lowrie has spent a lifetime studying how people learn. Professor Lowrie provides a useful framework to consider for anyone tasked with providing educational support in our high performance system including how to measure, model and enhance educational outcomes.
