Undergraduate Course: Physical Education PE3B Perspectives (EDUA10094)
|School||Moray House School of Education
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||The 20-credit course offers students an opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding in key areas of disciplinary enquiry as these might be applicable to contexts of a teacher=s professional action. In order to encourage linkage between such forms of enquiry, the strands of curriculum, physical activities, pupils, teaching and learning, will constitute shared points of focus. A selected number of theoretical perspectives will make a contribution to the wider appreciation of how student teachers prepare for teaching and learning and the factors that can influence decision-making in schools. Aesthetics centres on the study of performance and physical education, examining aesthetic concepts and theories to provide a framework for viewing and interpreting performance, especially in relation to dance. Socio-cultural studies examine sociological, psychological and socio-psychological perspectives on people and society and their implications for sport and physical education. Science perspectives consist of an explanation of typical pupil movement behaviours as these are influenced by growth, development and maturation allied to the demands of performance expectations (in various forms of physical education and sport).
Students will choose to study two Perspectives from the three studied in years 1 and 2 (Aesthetics, Science, Sociocultural)

|Additional Information (Assessment)
||Students will be required to produce work as part of formative assessment procedures. These would allow a) student subject focus, b) checks on student progress with basic ideas/theory and c) students to become more confident in explaining and developing these for teaching purposes.
Summative assessment of the course will be related to each of the two Perspectives studied in the year. Thus students will be required to undertake two separate assessments.
The assessment for each perspective will consist of either a 2000 word assignment or a 1.5 hour examination.
The mark for the PE3B course will be arrived at by averaging the marks from the 2 Perspective assessments.
If either of these marks is 29 or below, the course grade will automatically be recorded as a 'fail' irrespective of the 2nd mark.
If one, and only one, mark lies within the range of 30-39, then it may be compensated by a higher pass mark from the 2nd Perspective and the grade corresponding to the averaged mark awarded.
