Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In 2008, the presenter examined the use of podcasting to assess short research studies by a group of six undergraduate, pre-service final year science teachers. The podcasts were assessed against existing criteria and potential of podcasts within professional graduate teaching courses was considered. The research found that the target audience met, and in many ways exceeded our expectations. As a result, the approach was developed with a larger group of pre service teachers for further study during session 2008/09. This seminar will explore: how the process of preparing podcasts extends pre-service teachers' professional learning; how pre-service teachers can use podcasts to demonstrate their understanding of principles of learning and teaching; and how podcasts can be peer and self-assessed. The presenter hopes to involve some students in this presentation.
