Project Abstract:

Physical education teachers are in the business of teaching children to become physically literate. Physically literate individuals move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. In order for teachers to encourage physical literacy, they must have the ability to accurately observe, analyze and assess movement skills. The aim of this project is to develop a mastery-based online course in movement analysis. Master- based learning is focused on the premise that student teachers must show competency in order to progress through the coursework. The goal for this course is to help student teachers gain the knowledge and skills needed to apply motor development theory when analyzing and correcting movement skills and consequently provide students with congruent feedback that enhances their learning. This course will be developed and shared through the OPEN SUNY Learning Commons.

Outcomes TBD (August 2016)
