Online learning is at the forefront of American education. Daum and Buschner (2012) found that secondary physical education teachers expressed support, hesitation, and even opposition to online physical education (OLPE). Mohnsen (2012) believes that OLPE is the future of the subject matter. This national issue warrants discussion and debate. The focus of this session will include a panel of experts and round table discussions (participants) on the topic of OLPE.
