This new and updated second edition of Debates in Physical Education explores issues physical education teachers encounter in their daily lives. By engaging with both established and contemporary debates, this volume challenges readers to think about and reflect on the relative validity of positions presented in order to develop their own reasoned and personal view in relation to the topics explored.
Divided into four accessible sections, this book investigates and offers fresh insight into topics of central importance in physical education. Chapters include, for example:
- Physical education as a means or as an end in itself;
- Knowledge for physical education;
- The physical education curriculum;
- Assessment in physical education;
- Technology, pedagogy and physical education.
- Physical education beyond schools and teachers.
Designed to stimulate discussion and support readers in their own research, writing and practice, Debates in Physical Education will be a valuable resource for any student or practising teacher engaged in initial teacher education, continuing professional development or Master's level study.

"This is a completely revamped edition of the 2013 version and explores current issues as well as longestablished ones, such as the purpose of physical education (PE), assessment and inclusion... The book was released during a pandemic and will provoke self-analysis in reimagining our subject... Highly recommended!" - Declan Hablin, Physical Education Matters
