Course description

How do we address the challenges and opportunities facing teachers, leaders and practitioners in sport, health and physical education? This course critically examines current issues across these fields of practice from a range of perspectives. Students will undertake an investigation of specific issues relevant to their contexts.

Course overview

You will explore a range of current issues in sport, health and physical education. The course is taught by experts in all three areas who will introduce you to the latest research, theories and thinking. You will have input into some of the topics (this will be discussed at the first course meeting). Throughout the course, you will work on developing your own project on an issue specific to your context or area of interest. You will have opportunities in the final weeks to work one-on-one with lecturers to refine your project and the presentation associated with it.

This course is designed to flexibly address the dynamic environments in sport, health and physical education. It recognises that teachers, coaches and individuals working in sport, health and physical education want to help those they work with to successfully understand and navigate these constantly changing environments. You will gain a strong foundation across all three areas, and develop your own focused project to address current issues in your specific context
