Morales-Belando, María T.; Calderón, Antonio; Arias-Estero, José L. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2018
Background: Although a great deal of research has been undertaken from 1982 on TGfU, teachers consider its implementation to be complex and are reluctant to integrate it into their teaching practice. Furthermore, some TGfU literature does not suggest how it might be implemented and how problems might be overcome. On the other hand, a review of…

Background: As with any period of transition, the induction into a university degree in Physical Education and Sport studies can be a daunting encounter for many students. In recognition of this, increased attention is directed to specific institutional practices that might support students during this phase. Indeed, improving the first-year…

Ensign, Julene; Mays Woods, Amelia; Kulinna, Pamela Hodges; McLoughlin, Gabriella – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2018
Background: For beginning physical educators, navigating entry into the school environment can often be a capricious process. Lawson's (1983) theory of socialization illustrates the diverse variables that affect the highly volatile process of assimilation. The interplay of these variables in the socialization process directly influences the…

Potdevin, F.; Vors, O.; Huchez, A.; Lamour, M.; Davids, K.; Schnitzler, C. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2018
Background: Much of the existing research concerning the use of video feedback (VFB) to enhance motor learning has been undertaken under strictly controlled experimental conditions. Few studies have sought to explore the impact of VFB on the skill learning experience of the students in a structured, school-based physical education (PE) setting.…

Wiltshire, Gareth; Lee, Jessica; Evans, John – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Population health concerns related to physical inactivity and obesity appear in policy documents, government campaigns and popular media across western societies. Children and young people have been targeted for physical activity promotion and schools have been positioned as sites for intervention. In particular, Physical Education and…

Grimminger-Seidensticker, Elke; Möhwald, Aiko – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Due to migration processes, cultural diversity and strangeness are becoming characteristics of modern society. The competence to handle this heterogeneity--the so-called intercultural competence--is a key competence for all children and youths. Sports and physical education (PE) are often considered as a particular field for enhancing…

Aasland, Erik; Walseth, Kristin; Engelsrud, Gunn – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Previous research on physical education (PE) teaching practice indicates that an exercise physiology discourse has assumed a dominant position within the field. Research shows that PE teachers are likely to emphasise physical fitness training in their teaching, and PE teachers seem to appreciate pupils who show high levels of physical…

Enright, Eimear; Coll, Leanne; Ní Chróinín, Deirdre; Fitzpatrick, Mary – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Student voice agendas have been slow to permeate higher educational institutions. Curricula in universities, like those in primary and secondary education, are still usually made for students by teachers who, while they may have the best interests of the students in mind, rarely if ever engage students in curriculum decision-making.…

Borghouts, Lars B.; Slingerland, Menno; Haerens, Leen – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Assessment can have various functions, and is an important impetus for student learning. For assessment to be effective, it should be aligned with curriculum goals and of sufficient quality. Although it has been suggested that assessment quality in physical education (PE) is suboptimal, research into actual assessment practices has…

Walton-Fisette, Jennifer L.; Walton-Fisette, Theresa A.; Chase, Laura Frances – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Throughout this mediated society, young people, in particular, are mass consumers of corporatized media. The mediation of sport has long been critically examined within sociology and physical cultural studies [(e.g. Mcdonald, M. G., and S. Birrell. 1999. "Reading Sport Critically: A Methodology for Interrogating Power."…

Andersson, Joacim; Maivorsdotter, Ninitha – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Pedagogical research on career is encouraged to not limit sport learning to athletic skills, coaching effectiveness and coach-athlete relationships, but to also focus on learning in a multidimensional sense in the context of an athlete's individual and social biography. This article examines an elite athlete's career path as a body…

Araújo, Rui Manuel Flores; Hastie, Peter Andrew; de Assunção Bessa Pereira, Cristiana Helena; Mesquita, Isabel Maria Ribeiro – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: One of the essential elements within Sport Education is the inclusion of student roles and responsibilities. While previous research has examined students' performance in officiating tasks, the examination of student-coaches' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) within peer-assisted tasks of Sport Education has been scarce. Indeed, the…

Background: Fundamental motor skill proficiency is essential for engagement in sports and physical play and in the development of a healthy lifestyle. Children with motor delays (with and without disabilities) lack the motor skills necessary to participate in games and physical activity, and tend to spend more time as onlookers than do their…

Phillips, Sharon R.; Mercier, Kevin; Doolittle, Sarah – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Primary objective: Teacher evaluation is being revamped by policy-makers. The marginalized status of physical education has protected this subject area from reform for many decades, but in our current era of system-wide, data-based decision-making, physical education is no longer immune. Standardized and local testing, together with structured…
