|Subject Overview:|| |
Focused on community and school-based sport and physical education, this subject examines the place and significance of sport in Australia as a form of social education. It will highlight and examine major contemporary issues arising from growing tensions between sport's traditional role as a form of moral education and the emergence of sport as a commercial commodity. It will address issues such as the elite sport versus sport for all, health issues connected to participation rates, violence and gender issues as well as community identity with sport. In addition to lectures and workshops the experience of attending sporting institutions and major, culturally significant events on the Australian sporting calendar will form a core element of the subject and of the assessment.
Note: Participants in some field trips may be charged an additional fee to cover fieldwork trip costs.
|Assessment:||A 2000-word media analysis and a 2000-word reflection on a field trip supported by information from lectures and readings.|
