Course description

This course aims to develop students┬┐ knowledge, confidence, and capacity to coordinate and lead programs of sport and physical activity within primary school settings (beyond Health and Physical Education). Topics covered within the course involve whole-school sport and physical activity programs, sport and physical activity coordinators, social marketing and sports/physical activity promotion, integration of physical activity in the classroom, community partnerships, and securing funding. Students will engage in a range of interactive learning experiences and authentic assessment tasks that will help them develop an understanding of the theory and practice underlying the abovementioned topics in primary school settings. Assessment tasks include (a) advocating for, organising, delivering, and reflecting on, a professional development workshop targeting classroom physical activity integration, and (b) applying for funding for the purposes of developing or extending a whole-school sport and physical activity program at a primary school.
