This unit develops the skills necessary to teach physical education in the secondary school. It focuses on practical and theoretical skills with an emphasis on effective and ineffective behaviours. The unit has a lecture, tutorial and practical format. Major areas covered include the development of organisational, personal, planning and management skills, and the formation of a personal philosophy towards the teaching of Physical Education.
Students continue to develop professional skills based on teaching practicum experience. There is an emphasis on camp planning and delivery, and preparation for further teaching practicum. Outcomes in transferability (communication, lifelong learning), science as a human endeavour (innovation, social context), and international quality (research-informed teaching, leadership) are emphasised.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) camp—planning, development and delivery; (2) assignments—class observation and report, reflective issues; and (3) assignment feedback. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
