Synopsis

The unit builds upon a sequence of foundation units that students study in the first two years of the degree. It explores a range of pedagogical practices associated with the provision of sport and movement education and considers socio-ecological factors that impact upon the experience. Students will critically explore traditional and contemporary principles that underpin sport, physical and fitness education practices applied to school and community settings and consider their use within broader frameworks for physical activity participation. Students will apply concepts in practical movement settings that may include dance, gymnastics, games and lifestyle exercise based programs.

Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  • Discuss skills and basic movement techniques associated with alternate sport and movement experiences;
  • critique a variety of traditional/contemporary pedagogical practices and their associated theories and describe how these are located within a broader socio-ecological frame for physical activity;
  • plan and implement a movement experience unit of work grounded in a relevant theoretical framework (e.g. SEPEP, Cooperative Learning, Games Sense);
  • apply a critical reflective practice that considers the interplay between developmental, social, cultural and environmental elements of the sport and movement education context.
