Here the teacher engages in a professional discussion with a colleague to reflect on the outcomes of his lesson. He refers to his planning template for teaching motor skills (from simple skill application through to difficult elements for game play). He emphasises the importance of partner and small group learning, connecting new learning to previous learning and student evaluation. Both teachers draw on their expertise in working with students of different ages to evaluate effective strategies for achieving successful learning outcomes.
At the end of a Physical Education lesson that focused on the skills associated with the 'soccer pass', the teacher initiates a professional discussion with a colleague to reflect on the content of the lesson and the teaching strategies he used. The teacher describes why he thinks these teaching strategies are effective and asks his colleague to reflect on the content and strategies he uses when working with junior students in their primary school. This collegial discussion enables the teachers to share their practice as a means of improving their own knowledge about teaching and learning in their learning area.
