Learning in Physical Education: A Self-Determination Theory Perspective
Sun, Haichun; Li, Weidong; Shen, Bo
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v36 n3 p277-291 Jul 2017
The purpose of this study was to review the literature relevant to learning in physical education (PE) according to the self-determination theory (SDT). In this literature review, we first provide an overview of SDT. Second, we discuss students' SDT-related motivational profiles in PE. Third, we illustrate the relationships among students' perceptions of the nature of an autonomy-supportive or controlling learning environment, need satisfaction, and self-determined motivation. Fourth, we explore the impact of SDT on students' learning in PE with respect to the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning domains. Finally, we articulate the pedagogical implications on the basis of the reviewed SDT research and future directions for SDT research in PE.
