Subject outline

This subject provides a general overview of the Key Learning Area (KLA) of health and physical education (HPE). HPE is a complex learning area and this subject reflects the variability and complexity in the KLA as it is represented and experienced in the Australian context. Rather than present just one dominant account of the learning area, various traditions of HPE are analysed. Since games and sports represent a large proportion of HPE programmes within Australia, an appropriate understanding of different models and approaches of teaching in HPE is important in order to enhance student learning. Consequently, this subject is designed to introduce students to the educational benefits of student-designed games by integrating different models of HPE through creative and innovative projects.
