Pre-service educators strengthen their capacities to teach through investigating and practising the multiple roles of teachers and continuing to develop their knowledge of how children learn in health and physical education environments. Understanding how children learn enables teachers to identify diverse needs and make informed decisions for effective teaching, evidenced in planning.
Health and physical education (HPE) are dynamic areas where knowledge is fluid and constantly changing or evolving. It is crucial for health and physical education pre-service educators to develop thorough, current knowledge and skills in a range of instructional strategies and teaching styles.
Students will critique research and practices to determine the most appropriate instructional strategies and teaching styles for the demographic, content and context, in order to enhance pedagogy for improved instructional and performance outcomes.
Students will recognise the multiple roles of a teacher and learn how to apply a wide variety of instructional strategies and teaching styles to achieve specific targeted outcomes.
HPE pre-service educators and others will review, reshape, reconstruct, and apply current pedagogical practices revealed in relevant research. They will analyse, experience and evaluate traditional and contemporary theories and models relevant to inclusive teaching and learning in health and physical education that meets diverse student needs.
HPE pre-service educators will focus on developing knowledge and skills that promote understanding and effective teaching through planning. They will apply a variety of relevant pedagogical strategies for a diverse range of developmental levels, cultural backgrounds and age demographics whilst taking into account contextual factors and legislative requirements to ensure a safe and accessible learning environment for all learners.
On successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
- evaluate current scholarship and traditional and contemporary pedagogical strategies to determine qualities and practices for effective teaching or coaching (APST 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.3)
- apply a variety of appropriate pedagogical strategies to planning and implementation in a range of sport, exercise, physical education and health promotion contexts and settings (APST 1.1, 2.2, 3.2, 3.3, 3.6)
- apply systemic and legislative safety and equity requirements (APST 3.2, 3.4, 3.5, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4)
- critically reflect on practice to receive and provide feedback and refine planning and instruction in a range of contexts and settings (APST 2.3, 3.2, 3.6, 6.3, 7.4).
