Abstract: Following the success of the poster presentations at last year's afPE National Physical Education and School Sport Conference, they were included again at the Conference in July. The presentations offered an opportunity for both new and experienced researchers to share their recently completed research, or work in progress, as part of the research strand. The posters were very well received and facilitated fruitful discussions about research with colleagues in a relatively informal and relaxed setting. In terms of process, individuals interested in presenting a poster at the conference were invited to submit a short abstract to Lorraine Cale (Chair of the afPE Research Committee) for consideration, including a brief overview of the aims, methodology, findings and conclusion(s) of their research, and identifying their work with one of the key conference strands of pedagogy, leadership and health. Based on the submissions received, a total of 11 posters were accepted, with eight in the pedagogy category, two relating to leadership and one focusing on health. Within these, it was also great to see work from a range of educational institutions and other organisations from the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia. Those represented were the University of Bedfordshire; University of Brighton; Brunel University; Dublin City University; University of Edinburgh; University of Glasgow; Learn 2 Group; Leeds Metropolitan University; Liverpool John Moores University; Loughborough University; Monash University; Primary Professional Development Service, Dublin; Southampton Solent University; and the University of Sussex.
