Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Enforced Pre-requisites:

Year 1 Methods of Teaching Health and Physical Education 1A


Course Description

Methods of Teaching Physical & Sport Education 1B is designed to build on the theoretical basis and skill foundation in teaching physical and sport education introduced in Methods of Teaching Health and Physical Education 1A.

Emphasis will be placed on building a more comprehensive understanding and application of teaching competencies introduced in first semester. An understanding of the interaction of the teacher, student and teaching context will be developed. The teaching practice component of this course provides for the acquisition of teaching skills and professional competencies in an applied setting. You will complete an experience in a primary school setting under the supervision of an experienced teacher of physical education.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

 This course will contribute to the student’s development of a range of Victorian Institute of Teaching and Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership National Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL).

 Specifically, this course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes for BP041 Bachelor of Applied Science (Health and Physical Education):

  • Demonstrate an understanding of students and know how they learn (PLO1)
  • Develop content knowledge and how to teach it (PLO2)
  • Plan and implement effective teaching and learning strategies (PLO3)
  • Create and maintain a supportive and safe learning environment (PLO4)
  • Engage in professional learning (PLO6)
  • Engage professionally with colleagues, parent/carers and the community (PLO7)

 


 Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • CLO1: Discuss, compare and contrast historical events, documents and key figures in physical education across the world and Australia.
  • CLO2: Plan, develop and evaluate individual lesson plans and units of instruction.
  • CLO3: Distinguish effective physical education teaching practices in a school setting with particular expertise in the Year 1 teaching competencies.
  • CLO4: Implement and evaluate new teaching pedagogies during placement as appropriate.
  • CLO5: Adapt teaching strategies to different skill development stages and individual learning characteristics of children and adolescents.
  • CLO6: Compare and select typical design processes involved in developing a physical education curriculum and of content commonly taught in primary and lower secondary school physical education programs.
  • CLO7: Reflect on your own teaching practices as basis for improving educational outcomes.


Overview of Learning Activities

Lectures, independent reading of both Australian and international peer reviewed texts and journals, learning hub activities, and practical placements are the key student learning experiences. Synergy between lectures, the laboratory school placement and the practical sessions is the fundamental basis of planned learning experiences of the course. Personal reflection and feedback from supervisors provide a foundation for individual growth. You will be strongly encouraged to practice skills in those areas where your ability to demonstrate skills needs improvement.

You will undertake three (3) hours per week comprising of lectures, online activities, and practical tutorials. In addition, you are expected to spend a minimum of three (3) hours per week in independent study. Preparation for and reflection on teaching placement will require an additional minimum of four (4) hours.


Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources in this course include a prescribed textbook, class readings, lecture notes, practical exercises, handouts and references on selected topics.  MyRMIT studies provides opportunities for you to independently access much of this material.  It will be to your advantage to access and review lecture notes prior to class. These should not however be viewed as a complete set of lecture note materials.


Overview of Assessment

All hurdle requirements for this course are indicated clearly in the assessment regime that follows, against the relevant assessment task(s) and all have been approved by the College Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor (Leaning & Teaching).

Assessment tasks

 The assessment for this course will consist of:

  1. Final Exam (30%) (CLOs 1,3,4,5,6, 7).
  2. Teaching Professional Portfolio (20%) (CLO 2, 3, 4, 6, 7).
  3. Physical Education Assessment ( 40%) (CLO 1, 3, 4, 5).
  4. Tutorial Assignment (10%) (CLOs 2,3,4,5,6,7)

The following hurdle requirements also apply:

TEACHING PLACEMENT

Students need to pass the teaching placement (100% attendance and engagement) in order to pass the course. Students are assessed by a VIT registered supervising teacher in their school and RMIT supervising staff. Students are also required to complete 10 hours of non-paid professional engagement within a school environment in addition to their teaching.

TEACHING PROFESSIONAL PORTFOLIO

Weekly lesson plans must be submitted to a satisfactory standard to be permitted to teach in schools. Students will be required to resubmit lesson plans if not satisfactory and if deemed unprofessional upon resubmission, will not be permitted to teach.

PRACTICAL CLASSES

In order to pass the course, you are required to attend and actively participate in 80% of practical sessions. If you fail to attend the sessions for reasons other than those approved by special considerations, additional sessions will not be provided by the course. If granted Special Consideration, you will become eligible to complete supplementary sessions to meet the hurdle requirement.

If you arrive after the class has commenced or leave before the class finishes, you will be marked as having arrived late or left early. You will be provided with one warning, and for each subsequent instance this behaviour will be marked as an absence.

 

 

Work Integrated Learning:
Students enrolled in this course will be required to undertake placement as part of the assessment of the course. A number of requirements must be met by students to ensure eligibility for placement. Further details on each of these are available in Part B of the Course Guide and on MyRMIT.
• Working with Children Check

Students enrolled in this course will be required to undertake placement as part of the assessment of the course. A number of requirements must be met by students to ensure eligibility for placement.
Students are responsible for any expenses associated to attending professional placement. These costs may include, but are not limited to the following: uniform, police check application, first aid training, travel, accommodation and vaccinations.
Further details on each of these are available on MyRMIT.

Placement Agreements:
Placement agreements between RMIT and the placement organisation are in place. Any information required by students contained in the agreement is available on MyRMIT or InPlace.

Working with Children Check:
A current Working with Children Card (WWCC) must be held by the student. Students are required by law to list RMIT as an organisation with who you will be undertaking child related volunteer work. Where a student receives a negative notice for their WWCC, the Placement Coordinator or WIL Coordinator will make contact with the relevant placement organisation to confirm eligibility to attend the placement. A negative notice means you cannot engage in child-related work under any circumstance. It is important to note that a negative notice may prevent a student from accessing suitable, or any, professional placement(s) and may therefore be delayed or prevented from satisfactorily progressing through the program.

Uniform:
Students are required to purchase and wear the uniform for Health & Physical Education. The uniform must be worn at all times while on placement.
