Fidelity in Models-Based Practice Research in Sport Pedagogy: A Guide for Future Investigations
Hastie, Peter A.; Casey, Ashley
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v33 n3 p422-431 Jul 2014
This paper provides a commentary on research on models-based practice within physical education and presents a tutorial that aims to guide the reporting of future research using pedagogical models. Three key elements are presented that could be considered as essential for inclusion in any methods section in order for readers to gain an accurate and complete understanding of the results of studies. These are (a) rich description of the curricular elements of the unit, (b) a detailed validation of model implementation, and (c) a detailed description of the program context that includes the previous experiences of the teacher and students with the model or with models-based practice. Examples of why these are particularly prudent are provided by reference to papers reporting the outcomes of several currently used models. (e.g., Sport Education, Teaching Games for Understanding, and Cooperative Learning).
