Teaching Games for Understanding Conference Supplement from the German Sport University
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v87 suppl 1 pSi-S120 2016
By bringing together the national German sports game community and an international scientific community in a joint conference, the 6th International Teaching Games for Understanding Conference (TGfU) Meets the 10th German Sports Games Symposium of the German Association of Sport Science (DVS), held July 25-27, 2016, at the German Sport University in Cologne, fostered the interdisciplinary discussion of team and racket sports in the fields of sport pedagogy, sport didactics, sport psychology, computer science, human movement science, and training science.
