EDHP3001: Physical Education 3

2024 unit information

This unit emphasizes linking physical education pedagogy with classroom pedagogy to make physical education an integral part of the school syllabus. Through reading, active participation in practical workshops and lectures students will engage with the latest developments in physical education pedagogy and practice and apply them in practical contexts. The content and assessment within this unit is informed by the Community Engagement and Service Learning Program, and students may be required to reflect on and utilize their service learning experience to complete this unit. This unit of study is the third 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 NSW PDHPE syllabus and the practical activities of games and sports, athletics (track and field) and aquatics. Skills will be developed and rehearsed in practical workshops allowing students to acquire a level of mastery and to transfer the learning theory into practice in a supportive environment through both peer and lecturer feedback.
