Abstract [en]

In order to plan, interact and reflect on teaching, pre-service teachers (PSTs) use practical knowledge and personal beliefs as a framework (Levin & Hee, 2008). Practical knowledge refers to the complex sets of understanding that teachers use to shape and direct their teaching (Elbaz, 1981). In this study, we focus on the practical knowledge PSTs develop about their teaching and learning during their first PEH subject matter course of physical education teacher education (PETE) program. The practical knowledge they construct, the sources this derives from, and if there are differences between men and women, are areas that will be illuminated in this study. Data consists of interviews with 71 first-years PSTs from three cohorts building on earlier written assignments in which PSTs, were supposed to describe ten significant didactical milestones (DMs, practical knowledge) that would guide their future teaching. In the interviews, the PSTs were asked to specify the sources of their DM´s. The analysis of the interviews was both qualitative with content analysis, and quantitative for comparisons of frequencies regarding their sources. The results show that the sources of their DMs can be categorised into four different areas that influence their practical knowledge; general education studies, specific PE courses, earlier teaching-/coaching experiences, personal athlete-/student experiences. The main influence among the students in this study are related to content given through general education studies and the specific PE subject matter course. There is some significant differences between women and men’s sources. Women in a higher degree specify sources from the PE subject matter course and men in a higher degree specify sources from their earlier personal experiences. These results shows that practical knowledge is a highly socially constructed process and considerations regarding PSTs earlier experiences need to be discussed and challenged during PETE.
