The learning outcomes of this course have been planned to reflect a consideration of the Australian Qualifications Framework and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Through an activity-based approach, this course will develop an understanding of the role of health and physical education (HPE) in promoting physical, mental, emotional and social health for young people. The learning activities will enable students to master basic knowledge, concepts and skills to teach HPE in schools including effective planning and reflective practice. Exploration of international developments is used to extend insights into curriculum, pedagogy and assessment models and practises. The development of an enthusiasm for physical activities and HPE teaching is also a major aim of the course.
