The aim of this research project is to:
- to prepare a summary of existing research on best practice in effective fundamental movement skill development in the work place (within and beyond education)
- (b) to analyse different models of fundamental movement skill training in physical education teacher education in two research sites, and to compare them with each other and the existing literature on effective fundamental movement skill training,
- (c) to provide an opportunity for researchers/teachers/lecturers in contact with the two research sites to comment on current practice and to identify gaps in their training and preparation for becoming an effective fundamental movement skill teacher
- (d) to prepare a position statement on effective fundamental movement skill training in physical education teacher education that can inform practice in the two research sites, underpin joint research publications and provide a rationale for further collaborative research funding.
