The PhysEd-Academy project will results in the following direct outcomes:

  • Establishment of an international collaboration between PE teachers and PE teacher educators across Europe
  • Establishment of a PE teacher education framework for strategic planning, policy development, proactive leadership, and adaptive design to ensure high-quality PE and PE teacher education
  • A student mobility opportunity for pre-service PE teachers
  • A summer school opportunity for in-service teachers and teacher educators
  • A tested and refined list of signature pedagogies of PE teacher education and continuous professional development
  • A series of modules for initial physical education teacher education guided by signature pedagogies
  • An online continuous professional development program for in-service PE teachers
  • Open access to outcomes and outputs through the PhysEd-Academy website


The results of the PhysEd-Academy project will hold implications for improving the quality of physical education teacher education and school-based physical education programs. Consequently, the project will benefit physical education teacher educators, pre-service and in-service physical education teachers and pupils. The project will also hold implications that will help educational policy makers make informed decisions concerning physical education in higher education and schools. With its international scope, the project will benefit these target populations across Europe, while also holding insights for broader audiences around the world.

The PhysEd-Academy is a three year project. It began June 3, 2022, and will end on June 2, 2025.

The PhysEd-Academy project involves a series of research studies. The overarching project uses a collective action approach through collaborative self-study of teaching and teacher education practice and communities of practice. Within each study, specific qualitative data collection methods include: reflective diaries, meeting transcripts, focus group interviews, teaching and learning artifacts, non-participant observations, and a scoping review of literature.
