In an era of limited resources across educational sectors, academics associated with faculties of education are under increasing pressure to find innovative ways to support their teaching and research activities - activities with which collaboration and interaction with pre-service teachers, practicing teachers and fellow academics is crucial. As such, developing a sustained community that involves such representative members is paramount for academics. A team at the University of Wollongong has initiated this concept through research and development of the ActiveHealth learning community for physical and health educators. Whilst it is envisaged that such a project will take time to establish, a number of priority areas have been identified: the development and sharing of physical and health education teaching and learning resources; the professional development of teachers; and the use of information and communication technologies (lCTs) through ActiveHealth to support pre-service teachers involved in the practicum. This paper outlines the development of the ActiveHealth community and the support provided for teachers and students through communication within an ActiveHealth framework.
