|Subject Overview:||This subject combines theoretical and practical issues in teaching and learning based on the Physical, Personal and Social learning strand of the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). Through student centred and inquiry-based approaches to physical activity and sport pedagogy, we will explore the VELS strand and develop strategies to integrate Physical Education and the other domains within this strand (Interpersonal learning, Personal learning and Civics & Citizenship). Specific areas we will focus on in this physical education subject are planning & programming; unit development & assessment (for years 7-10); integration & implementation of VELS; organisation & management of the learning environment; and an exploration of student centred & inquiry based pedagogy. Teacher candidates will also be required to critically reflect on their experiences in their practicum and their own background in physical activity and suggest how one’s values and life histories impact upon curriculum decisions, the pedagogies employed in schools, and the expectations that one has of students.|
