The way school Health and Physical Education (HPE) is conceptualized and taught will impact on its ability to provide equitable outcomes across gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion and social class.

Lyngstad, Idar; Bjerke, Øyvind; Lagestad, Pål – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Previous research shows that understanding pupils' emotional affiliations with content in physical education (PE) is important. Findings point out the importance of the teacher signaling that the pupil is seen beyond the skill and knowledge aspects in class. However, the research literature does not offer very many detailed elaborations on the…

Afdal, Hilde Wågsås; Afdal, Geir – European Educational Research Journal, 2019
Changing conditions in the realm of teacher professionalism have consequences for teachers' professional values and ethics. To a large degree, the literature concludes that increases in accountability policies seem to result in more restricted space for teachers' professional values and ethical autonomy. Less attention has been given to which…

In rural Valdres, Norway, the traditional regional dialect, called Valdresmål, has become an important resource for popular style and local development projects.

Sweetman, Rachel – Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
Proliferating claims have been made for Learning Outcomes (LOs) potential to re-shape higher education: as forces for transparency and harmonisation, new forms for measurement or a format that fundamentally challenges traditional teaching and learning. Evidence of their actual influence remains sparse, however. This analysis of 45 interviews with…
