This course will draw on the historical curriculum development literature in physical education and critically evaluate how this has shaped current understandings of curriculum knowledge, learning and teaching. Students will also consider the embodiment of movement, ethics and the role technology might play in creating personal meaning and understanding in future iterations of physical education. Through a blend of theory and practical sessions, students will conceptualise, implement and critically reflect on effective teaching and learning approaches in physical education contexts in Aotearoa New Zealand.
