In ED4493 students are required to draw on their discipline and curriculum knowledge and skills to plan innovative learning experiences for students, apply technology in an engaging and learning-oriented manner, develop pedagogical initiatives that support learning in and beyond the official physical education curriculum, and develop assessment items and make judgements of student work that are well-grounded in the field of physical education.
