Pedagogy for Physical Education 5 (EDUH4005)


This is the fifth and last physical education pedagogy unit of study. It has been designed to build on the sociocultural focus in the current NSW PDHPE syllabus and the emerging Australian Curriculum in Health and Physical Education (HPE). The focus is to enable students to gain a wider variety of experiences in teaching physical education and promoting physical activity to a range of students. During the unit of study, students will also have the opportunity to examine their own culture, values, attitudes, assumptions and behaviours as they plan, teach and critically reflect upon teaching experiences that include students from cultural minority and/or socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
