Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit is the first of the two Health and Physical Education units, undertaken in sequence. One purpose of this unit is to develop your knowledge in relation to a variety of pedagogical considerations which are not only pertinent to Health and Physical Education teaching but also general classroom teaching, ensuring each student is catered for not only physically but also emotionally, socially, mentally and spiritually. Another purpose is to develop your knowledge and skills for planning, teaching and learning across the health and physical education curriculum and your ability to integrate it into the various curriculum areas involved in everyday teaching.
Skills that are emphasised in this unit are those that have been identified by the Teachers Registration Board (TRB), as well as national teaching bodies, as important by the time you graduate with your teaching degree. These include demonstrating aspects of professional knowledge, professional relationships and professional practice.
