What Knowledge Is of Most Worth? Perspectives on Kinesiology from Pedagogy
Rink, Judith
Quest, v59 n1 p100-110 Feb 2007
Historically, physical education "birthed" the discipline areas and was the umbrella term for the studies now included in the term kinesiology. In many places, the relationship between pedagogy and the disciplines grew uneasy with the desire of the field to gain academic respectability. This paper explores the status of the relationship between kinesiology and physical education at this point and time, the value of discipline knowledge for the preparation of teachers in physical education, and alternative perspectives on resolving some of the issues presented in the relationship between the two areas of study.
