ED4493 - Advanced Studies in Physical Education, Health and Wellbeing
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Arts, Society & Education
To equip future Health and Physical Education teachers with the expertise and associated
knowledge and skills to fulfil their official teaching and learning responsibilities.
This subject intends to explore advanced teaching in health and physical education,
as well as explore the pedagogy and practice of service learning. In ED4493, preservice
teachers will integrate and extend on their discipline and curriculum knowledge and
skills to plan innovative learning experiences for children/adolescents, apply technology
in an engaging and learning-oriented manner, and develop assessment items and make
judgements. Preservice teachers will develop and implement pedagogical initiatives
that support learning beyond the official health and physical education curriculum
through meaningful community service (minimum 50 hours). The service learning projects
will aim to strengthen communities with a focus on activities that promote social
responsibility. Preservice teachers will explore a range of learning partnerships
with community agencies, industry and business, preparing them for their role with
children/students and in the wider community.
- Understand and apply the key principles described in codes of ethics and conduct for
the teaching profession and ensure that service and community learning experience
enhances the status of the profession;
- Critically reflect on professional learning and active citizenship, and disseminate
their contributions the the wider community;
- Demonstrate Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at an assured level;
- Critically reflect on assessment practices in health and physical education to design
quality tasks that integrate technology, and gain critical insight into judgement
and moderation processes;
- Demonstrate professional engagement with colleagues and the wider community through
established learning goals, participation in teams, and demonstration of responsive
and differentiated pedogogies for diverse learners in authentic contexts.
|It is assumed that students will have strong academic literacy capabilities; appropriate
knowledge and skills to engage critically with texts and tasks; capacity for reflection
and effective professional and interpersonal communication skills; the ability to
work in new settings and contribute in meaningful ways; capacity for time-management
and strong organisational skills.
