This unit builds upon EDF2172 (Applied movement contexts in health and physical education 1) and is the third unit in a sequence of studies that seek to develop students' theoretical knowledge within practical contexts. Students explore and develop a range of pedagogical practices across a range of learning contexts including minor games, games and sport utilising evidenced-based practice (e.g., Sport Education, Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility). In addition, traditional and contemporary practices that underpin sport, physical activity and health and physical education are critically evaluated. Students apply appropriate concepts and knowledge to a variety of practical settings.


Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  1. understand the philosophy and theoretical basis of applied movement contexts
  2. actively demonstrate competencies in practical components
  3. critique a variety of traditional/contemporary pedagogical practices and their associated theories
  4. plan and implement a movement experience unit of work grounded in a relevant theoretical framework.
