Examining the evidence for improved educational and learning outcomes through Physical Education in Schools

Project: Research

Project Description

This research project aims to bring together available evidence from relevant programs/projects to help education authorities, schools, parents and students to consider all the positive benefits that physical education can have, including in relation to learning outcomes.
The research will involve a stock-take and review of relevant available research and evidence in Australia (and if appropriate overseas), where improved learning outcomes for school students have been demonstrated to result from effective implementation of the physical education element of the curriculum.
This will include looking at evidence of what works, elements of success, relevant contextual factors, and how Australian education authorities could use this evidence to improve educational and health outcomes for their students in their schools.
