The subject provides opportunities for teacher education students to examine and apply the NESA K-10 Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) syllabus and support materials, to the design of programs and assessment tasks, that support and celebrate primary school students' achievement, including those children with a disability. In this subject, students will explore contemporary models of pedagogy relating to the teaching of personal development and health issues, as well as modified games, dance, gymnastics and fitness. The subject further allows students to create learning links between the PDHPE Strands, other Key Learning Areas, and the general capabilities, including literacy, numeracy and digital literacy. Students will investigate the role and educational value of PDHPE in the broader school curriculum, drawing on knowledge of critical transitions, including prior to school and Stage 3 to 4. The subject will further support students to select and ethically use digital resources to enhance learner outcomes in primary PDHPE.
