Pedagogy for Physical Education 3 (EDUH3018)


This unit is the third of five units on pedagogy in physical education. The unit picks up from where EDUH2017 Pedagogy for Physical Education 2 finished with a focus on student-centred approaches to teaching games and sport as activities that are suitable for the adoption of guided discovery and problem solving teaching styles. In particular, the unit focuses on Game Sense pedagogy and the educational benefits that it offers for teaching games and sport across the school setting. In line with the new Health and Physical Education national curriculum, this unit examines the use of the Game Sense to achieve tactical transfer across the four game categories of invasion games, striking games, net/wall games and target games.
