Towards « Quality Physical Education » – Strategies and content of training approaches for Physical Education teachers in Europe

Faced with the decline in physical activity, the increase in overweight and obesity or the ultra-presence of social networks, supporting students towards “Quality Physical Education” is a priority issue for the European Union, which has set itself new objectives in terms of education and training. What are the strategies and content developed in the initial training of Physical Education teachers in European countries committed to this educational ambition?
The objective of this special issue is to draw a portrait of European training systems with isomorphic processes but perhaps governed by similar educational issues in order to identify the ways in which future PE teachers are trained and prepared to implement a “quality PE”. Empirical articles or reviews of the literature, written in English or French, from multiple disciplinary approaches (history, sociology, political science, education science, ethnography, etc.) can be submitted.

Deadline for submission: December 20th 2023
