Larsson, Lena; Linnér, Susanne; Schenker, Katarina – European Physical Education Review, 2018
In this paper, we critically examine the potential of assessment components in physical education teacher education (PETE) to either reinforce or challenge PETE students' conceptions of what a physical education (PE) teacher needs to know to teach this school subject. To understand the mechanisms that may contribute to the difficulty of…

Sinclair, Christina; Thornton, Leonard Jay – European Physical Education Review, 2018
Physical education reform efforts support constructivist learning theory (CLT) to re-conceptualize K-12 physical education. Advocates of models-based instruction (MBI) indicate that sport education and a tactical games approach are grounded in CLT. A key implication for physical education teacher education (PETE) programmes is to develop…

Cooperating teachers' teaching perspectives and participation in initial teacher education have been frequently considered as ways to understand teachers' learning trajectories and professional identity at workplace settings (Clarke and Jarvis-Selinger, 2005; Clarke et al. 2014; Lave and Wenger, 1991). A case study approach was employed to examine…
