Focus and Scope

The recent success of the Global Forum for Physical Education Pedagogy 2010 (GoFPEP 2010) held in Grundy Center, Iowa, USA brings renewed interest to the need for examining new forms of pedagogy, the use of technology, ways of linking practice to theory and the importance of contextually-based education embedded in community life as a way to reshape and redesign the future of health and physical education. An outcome of GoFPEP 2010 is this new journal called The Global Journal of Health and Physical Education Pedagogy. The journal aims to publish articles and features reflecting items of theoretical, applied, and professional interest drawn worldwide. In particular, the journal will seek to emphasize articles which advance best practice in the areas of health and physical education pedagogy and physical education teacher training. More specifically, building on the success of GoFPEP 2010, The Global Journal of Health and Physical Education Pedagogy seeks to

  1. promote dialog and discussion on critical issues related to health and physical education pedagogy, and physical education teacher training;
  2. explore new and existing effective models of pedagogy for preparing health and physical education teachers which promote accountability, builds community life, employs a greater use of reflection to improve practice and embeds learning in practice;
  3. examine the extension of health and physical education based school programs into community life;
  4. review the application of technology as related to the teaching of health and physical education;
  5. promote the establishment of partnerships between the school, community, university, nongovernmental organizations and commercial enterprises; and
  6. rethink the relationship between health and physical education as a strategy for promoting lifelong active living.
