Abstract

At the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) first year undergraduate students must complete a course called EDX1450 Curriculum and Pedagogy in Health and Physical Education that is delivered at the three physical campuses and online to an average enrolment of approximately 800 students from all over the world per year. Finding ways for trainee teachers to learn how to teach Health and Physical Education through a web based learning environment is a challenge. Ensuring the online students have an authentic experience in learning how to teach Health and Physical Education is being achieved through the use multiple modern technologies including MP3 players, video, Wimba classrooms, Skype, mobile phone, Camtasia relays, digital photography, YouTube clips, online forums, blogs, Facebook, podcasts, vodcasts and video conferencing. Tertiary students are demanding the flexibility of web based learning in all University courses. The University of Southern Queensland based in the regional city of Toowoomba, Queensland is one of the largest providers of online learning in tertiary education in Australia. Teaching Health and Physical Education in the online mode presents issues to be solved, especially in the area of teaching trainee teachers how to teach physical activity. Sustaining enrolment numbers and delivering courses online without compromising the quality of teacher training in the key learning area of Health and Physical Education is a challenge the Faculty of Education at USQ is meeting through trialling of ideas and building on student feedback.
