This subject further develops students' curriculum and pedagogical content knowledge of the principles and practices of expert primary teaching and learning in PDHPE. Students will learn to identify, critique, and respond to a range of global and local issues relevant to the teaching and learning of PDHPE in the Australian context. The subject explores the nature of young people's lives and how their priorities, values, actions and the broader social contexts in which they operate influence their meanings of health. Health status and risk taking are explored with a focus on the priority issues of personal safety, child protection and drug use. Students will engage in their own inquiry of issues, problems, and questions of interest in contemporary PDHPE education and investigate ways to integrate the primary curriculum to develop primary students' physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills and their literacy, digital literacy and numeracy capabilities. Models of effective pedagogy, emerging technologies and assessment practices specific to PDHPE will be explored to further develop students' programming skills to meet the diverse needs of primary students. This subject is required for students who are seeking a primary PDHPE specialisation.
