The unit engages with current knowledge and understanding about best practice and about the various needs of students in the middle years, applying these to the PE discipline.

Understanding of how to meaningfully integrate ICT for PE processes and for enhancing learning experiences will be cultivated. Pre-service teachers will engage in providing grading and feedback on various assessment tasks in line with content knowledge of the discipline, proficient teaching, and current research to maximise effectiveness and quality of student learning in the learning area. Pre-service teachers will foster a critical understanding from a Christian perspective of the various frameworks that have driven and shaped the teaching of Physical Education.
