questions related to the field of health and physical education and consider
how these have influenced, or are likely to influence, pedagogical
approaches to health and physical education in schools.
Opportunities will be provided for students to explore the important role that
theory and evidence-based practice plays in reflecting on, debating and
responding to a range of contemporary professional issues. Students will
