Pedagogy for Physical Education 4 (EDUH3019)


This unit is the fourth of five units of study on pedagogy in physical education. It follows on from EDUH3018 Pedagogy for Physical Education 3 to introduce the Sport Education pedagogical model as another form of student-centred teaching in physical education while focusing on issues that arise from the implementation of student-centred approaches to teaching physical education in schools with an emphasis on pre-service teachers and beginning teachers. Students will focus on these issues in lectures and in their tutorials on invasion, net/wall and target games with an emphasis on authentic assessment in physical education. The learning objectives of student-centred, inquiry-based approaches to teaching physical education such as Game Sense and Sport Education also require new methods of assessment that are examined in this unit of study.
