Project Objectives

The overarching objective of PhysEd-Academy is to facilitate radical change in physical education by developing sustainable and international collaboration between physical education and physical education teacher education that results in equitable outcomes for pre-service and in-service teachers, and school children and youth.

 To facilitate this, specific objectives of the project include: 

  1. Establishing a network for sustained, international collaboration between PE teachers and PE teacher educators across Europe, 
  2. Establishing a PE teacher education framework for strategic planning, policy development, proactive leadership, and adaptive design, 
  3. Identifying and articulating a set of signature pedagogies for learning across different national initial teacher education and continuous professional development programs, 
  4. Testing the set of signature pedagogies in initial PE teacher education programs, and 
  5. Identifying connections between PE teacher education and equitable student outcomes. 

Together, this will create a sustainable international PhysEd-Academy that connects and aligns teachers and teacher educators across Europe, thus ensuring the continuous improvement of school PE and initial, induction and in-service physical education teacher education. PhysEd-Academy is committed to becoming a key actor in improving the field of PE, with the aim to benefit local, regional, and international school PE and teacher education.
