EDPH500 Personal Development Health and Physical Education Curriculum
The emphasis of this unit is to address the multi-dimensional nature of PDHPE in the primary curriculum and also in the context of a rapidly changing society. Students will be encouraged to explore contemporary issues which impact on the overall health and well being of primary aged children now and in their future lives. There is a focus on the concepts, knowledge base, pedagogy, delivery and issues involved in providing quality teaching and learning in PDHPE in the primary school. This will extend also to the appropriate assessing and evaluating of PDHPE related programs that are aimed at ensuring that children adopt practices and make decisions that will lead to the maintenance of a healthy and active lifestyle.
