Year - 2018

Students will study teaching and learning in primary physical education with a focus on student-centred, inquiry-based pedagogy. Through reading, active participation in lectures and workshops students will engage with the latest developments in physical education pedagogy and apply it in practical contexts. This will involve practical workshop experiences as learner and planning for learning in physical education. This unit of study will integrate theoretical and practical knowledge in the study of physical education pedagogy focused on the intellectual dimensions of movement, inclusive practice and the development of skill within contexts that give it meaning and relevance for learners. Focused on the development of generalist primary school teachers' ability and inclination to teach physical education the subject encourages student-centred, inquiry-based teaching and the development of critically informed pedagogy and teacher decision-making.
