• Physical Education (K-12)


    The UNF Physical Education Teacher Education program prepares teacher candidates to successfully instruct students in K-12 physical education in addition to directing youth in extra-curricular sports and other school-based physical activity opportunities. The program provides systematic learning opportunities aimed at supporting teacher candidates to develop the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions needed to become effective, caring, reflective, and collaborative physical educators within diverse learning communities. These learning opportunities are designed based on competencies identified within local, state, and national educational and discipline-specific frameworks and are delivered through content-based and pedagogical coursework. Further, physical education learning opportunities are closely related to extensive field-based experiences in local partner schools and districts allowing teacher candidates to develop reflective practices based on the constructs of inquiry, ethic of care, and understanding of personal epistemologies.
