Physical Education 2 - EDHP2001

Year - 2020

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. This unit also examines the use of both direct and indirect pedagogy to achieve tactical transfer across the four games categories (invasion, striking, net/wall and target). This unit of study is the second of four examining pedagogical practice and content in physical education. The four units move pre-service teachers along a spectrum of styles for teaching physical education, ranging from direct to indirect styles. This unit specifically focuses on the Year 7-10 PDHPE syllabus and future Australian curriculum areas of active play and minor games; fundamental movement skills; and invasion and striking games (lacrosse, european handball, frisbee, cricket and softball). Skills will be developed and rehearsed in practical workshops allowing students to acquire a level of mastery and to apply their learning theory into practice in a supportive environment through both peer and lecturer feedback. All subject matter in this unit is underpinned and governed by organization, risk management, inclusivity, differentiation, curriculum planning, programming and assessment. In the practical workshops skills will be developed, corrected and refined, while curriculum content and pedagogy will be related to authentic assessment.
