"Hi Jax A great point there, especially in the sporting industry today its far more demanding physically than it used to be 10/20 years ago. So in my opinion its vital that the students always have a second option not just because of injuries and…"

"Hi Chris Jax's reply is brilliant.  I assume your students are relatively young, so to try and get them to contemplate a further career before they've had the first may be difficult!!?  Perhaps by using examples of those who…"

"Hi Chris, I have noticed recently that many of the people attracted to teaching have decided to change career path because they have realised that in order to extend their working life they need to rely on a skill set which is not tied to their…"

Christopher Heath commented on Samuel Kidby's blog post Sport In College
"Yes it is possible that it is due to timing and finance that sport is considered as important. An idea would be to incorporate physical activity into other lesson areas, in a similar way to functional skills."

Hannah Garnham replied to Christopher Heath's discussion Transfer of learning in sport
"Hi Chris, Firstly, I think when looking at our own course, we value the theory as we can see that it helps significantly when in our placements. However, this may be more effective as we are working in our placement areas each week. Secondly, we…"

"Yes the business studies room did motivate us to attend and it was a nice atmosphere to work in.  I agree, using spaces such as the changing rooms, the gym etc etc would be a good alternative, however as they are public areas they would need to…"

Christopher Heath replied to Keeley Knowles's discussion Does technology ultimately promote equality and enhance social relations?
"I think ultimatley it boils down to the teacher. Thankfully our education system from 11 upwards allows students to be taught by a number of teachers, all of which will be comfortable with different things, i think this variation is healthy and…"

Christopher Heath replied to Jacqueline Thomas's discussion Talking stick to promote good listening skills
"Yes, it certainly has the potential to do this. There is a fine balance between encouraging students and embarassing them. Getting to know your students and creating a 'safe' environment for them helps. Quite often I would do this with…"

"Hi Samuel An intreging scenario, and one if you get wrong could dis-engage a learner permanently. I feel that this can be achieved but it needs to be done subtly. For example placing stronger students with weaker students in paired or group…"

Transfer of learning in sport

As many PE teachers will understand a lot of our students sign up for PE as they enjoy the practical side of the subject while giving little thought to the theory side. Once they are then on the course they are dissappointed with the heavy bias towards theory. How do PE teachers, and other similar subjects, keep these types of learners engaged in non practical, classroom based activities?See More
