In March this year, the Shaping Paper for the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education (HPE) was released for consultation. It suggests Health and Physical Education should take a strengths-based approach, focus on educative outcomes, develop health literacy skills, value learning in, about and through movement and include a critical inquiry approach.
In this lecture, Lead Writer Professor Macdonald will introduce the research and thinking behind the paper, helping to illuminate this case of curriculum-making. It will also reflexively ask if this case is notable for its gradualism, interrogating the strength and weakness of gradualism as applied in curriculum reform.
This lecture is hosted in partnership with the Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER) Victoria.
