PE Sport and Physical Activity in Scotland and beyond

BERA Special Interest Group PE & Sport

Posted by drilly on September 27, 2007

A couple of weeks ago I had the enjoyable experience of attending the Invisible college! A BERA special interest group event about PE & Sport. It was attended by some the top academics and researchers in physical education and sport from around the world. The event was very enjoyable though I felt pretty inadequate in the company with more letters after their names than the countdown conundrum! The Keynote was delivered by the eminent researcher professor Doune McDonald from Australia which focused on issues of ethnicity in PE research.

I attended a forum chaired by Will Kay from Stirling university which discussed the case for and merits of PE versus sport. The presenters were 

Simon Bicknell – John Moores University Liverpool arguing the case for PE 

Hazel Williamson – YST Scotland arguing the case for sport.

View the powerpoint from the presentation below my first attempt at using slideshare . A really good debate ensued.
