As the first of two curriculum and pedagogy subjects, EMR441 Curriculum Method 1: Health & Physical Education and Outdoor Education will provide opportunities for students to develop an understanding of and apply the curriculum inclusions in the K-10 continuum of the NSW Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) Key Learning Area. This unit also prepares teacher education students to teach school-based outdoor education from Years 7 to 10. The subject aims to challenge students to justify the role and value of PDHPE and outdoor education in the broader school curriculum, explore and apply current theories relating to pedagogy and practice including the safe use of digital resources and tools, and accommodate the diversity of learners' needs, interests and abilities. In this subject, students will examine and apply contemporary, evidence-based practices relating to curriculum design, literacy and numeracy, digital literacy, differentiation, authentic assessment, quality teaching, and reporting in a range of contexts and settings.
