Advanced HPE Pedagogy ESP331


In the previous Unit of the HPE Pedagogy sequence, students have undertaken teaching and learning experiences to prepare them for forthcoming School Experience sessions, particularly in terms of understanding and planning for the nature, scope, content and experiences appropriate for Health and Physical Education programs for children in schools at levels K-12. The fourth Unit in the HPE Pedagogy series provides one final opportunity for students to refine their teaching and planning skills before undertaking their most important placement Professional Experience 4. In this Unit, students will be undertaking authentic learning tasks that will prepare them for the reality of the teaching profession.
