Integrated Learning (Sports Studies) requires students to apply their knowledge and skills to sporting and physical activity practicals and theory tasks, which lead to a specific purpose, product, or outcome. The subject draws links between aspects of students’ lives, physical activity, sport and the community.
Integrated Learning facilitates collaboration and teamwork. Students learn to plan and organise activities, and to develop their understanding of, and empathy with, others.
This course is designed for students who have a keen interest in sport and physical activity. Students will negotiate three practical activities to complete throughout the semester, with students background and the teachers expertise and experience being factors of consideration.
Students cannot choose this subject with Physical Education. The integrated learning subject requires students to reflect and evaluate their development of the SACE capabilities on an ongoing basis. Students should be aware of this reflection and evaluation component when choosing this subject.
