Join us on Thursday, September 27 at 12:00pm EST (noon!) as we welcome co-moderator Jace Ferguson from Universal American School in Dubai to our #WePlayChat topic on, “How Culture Affects the Definition of Play.”
Jace’s journey into the world of education started when he was just in his grade 12 year at his rural high school in Alberta, Canada. It was here where Jace was first shown the power of play and purposeful Physical Education where he job shadowed his Phys Ed teacher for an entire semester. This inspired his passion for education and propelled him to work towards receiving his Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta in 2006, Masters of Science in Recreation and Sport from Ohio University in 2013, and being engaged in this wonderful profession for twelve years.
Throughout his career, he has had the amazing opportunity to share his passion for play and education with students from K-12, work and develop programs to grow curriculum and pedagogy as the Health and Physical Education Council VP in Alberta. Currently, has has the amazing opportunity to work with students and fellow educators as an international teacher since moving to Dubai and to the Universal American School in 2015 where Jace currently serves as the K-12 Physical Education Program Coordinator. He has also become more involved in the pedagogy and professional development realm through offering webinars through ConnectedPE, #Physedagogy and have even presented at the live conferences in Dubai, Switzerland and soon Hong Kong in November.
