Sport and Learning in Australian Culture - EDUH4058

Year - 2018

This unit provides students with a socially critical perspective on the place, meaning and practice of sport in Australian culture. Focused on the range of learning that takes place through youth's engagement in sport, it examines the practice of sport at levels ranging from elite international sport to grass roots, community-based and school sport. The processes of globalisation and commodification in sport will be addressed in collaboration with the implications these processes have for the social and cultural development of youth. In striving to provide a meaningful educational experience this unit places students' first hand experiences of Australian sporting culture at the centre of the unit of study through the provision of field trips to relevant sporting events in Sydney. These experiences of Australian sporting culture are informed by a socially critical examination of sport in Australia through lectures and readings.
