Our PGCE and School Direct trainee PE teachers visited East Sussex College (Lewes Campus) to gain an insight into the teaching of post-16 Physical Education courses.
Trainees learnt more about the use of google classrooms and innovative ways to assess student progress such as video and verbal feedback, interactive assessment of learning and the use of flash cards using tablet devices and mobile phones. In addition, trainees were able to observe teaching in action and learn more about the latest revision resources available to students as well as being shown how to utilise the use of Twitter as an educational continued professional development resource.
PGCE and School Direct PE route leader, Dr Gary Stidder said: “This was a great opportunity for our PE trainees to gain valuable experience of post-16 physical education courses and ways in which the teaching and learning of these courses can enhance student progress. It was extremely beneficial for them to observe experienced practitioners which has contributed to their own professional development with respect to the Standards for Qualifying to Teach.”
