Course descriptionThis course will focus on developing students' knowledge and understanding of the physical education curriculum for the upper primary and early secondary years. The course will build on discourses in the current professional, academic and research literature and will be set within a developmental, inclusive and connected framework to enable exploration of links to wider lifelong learning agendas. Traditional and contemporary curricular developments will be examined, alongside current perspectives on learning and teaching in physical education. Theoretical and practical knowledge required for core learning in physical education will be pursued within authentic practical applications in order to support students planning, delivery and evaluation of developmentally appropriate learning experiences for upper primary and early secondary children.

Summary of Intended Learning Outcomes
By the end of the course students will be able to:

Articulate a detailed knowledge of contemporary socio-cultural and national discourses influencing developments within S1 and S2 levels of the secondary curriculum.

Demonstrate a detailed understanding of contemporary developments within Physical Education and the implication within S1 and S2 levels of the secondary curriculum.

Demonstrate an understanding of the learner / teaching styles and the implications for pupil learning, teacher intentions, content, delivery and assessment.

Demonstrate a practical knowledge and understanding of appropriate content for teaching and learning for pupils undertaking PE courses within S1 and S2 levels of the secondary curriculum.
Assessment Information
The scheme of assessment in the course will reflect the focus on Curriculum and Learning and Teaching. The grade for the Course will be based on the summative assessment of two university-based Assignments in the Curriculum and Teaching and Learning components.

A 2,000 word Curriculum assignment in which students will reflect on the current policy developments, philosophy and principles of CfE in Scotland and comparing the strengths, weaknesses and implication issues in relation to the early secondary sector.

A 2,000 word Pedagogy assignment in which students will reflect on the aspirations of CfE to place the child at the centre of the learning process and the need for increased interaction between teacher and learner. The students should consider the implications of CfE on pedagogy, the notion of value in education and PE, and the contribution of Mosston's Spectrum of Teaching styles to a range of experiences that could be justified as being of 'educational value'.
