"Quality of Teaching Physical Education" Erasmus+ project meeting
School of Education colleagues Dr. João Costa and Dr. Wesley O'Brien attended the "Quality of Teaching in Physical Education" (QualiTePE) Erasmus+ project meeting representing UCC as project researchers. This project meeting took place between October 4th and 6th, in Zurich (Switzerland). At this meeting, the QualiTePE project team - involving researchers from Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Spain, Sweden, and Ireland - advanced on the project's conceptual framework based on the "Main Teach Model" (Charalambous and Praetorius, 2020) with a view to develop a formative assessment tool that captures data on the teaching practices to be used in PE teacher education programmes by teacher educators, student teachers, and the school pupils. Ms. Úna Kingston, a UCC PhD candidate, is also a working member in the QualiTePE project.
