Making a Difference: Policies, People and Pedagogy in Physical Education and Sport

Author: Dawn Penney

WMIER has published the first in a series of booklets based on inaugural professorial lectures held at the University of Waikato.

Making a Difference: Policies, People and Pedagogy in Physical Education and Sport is based on a lecture given by Professor Dawn Penney on 12 July 2011. The lecture endeavoured to capture how Dawn's involvement in curriculum developments and initiatives in physical education internationally, over more than 20 years, has collectively shaped her current thinking about future directions in physical education.

Dawn is recognised internationally for her work in policy and curriculum development in health and physical education. Her research has engaged with major curriculum developments in both the UK and Australia and is underpinned by a concern to enhance equity in physical education and sport. Dawn gained her PhD from the University of Southampton, UK, in 1994 and held positions at Loughborough University, De Montfort University, The University of Queensland, Edith Cowan University and University of Tasmania before her appointment to The University of Waikato in 2010. Dawn is Chairperson of the Department of Sport and Leisure Studies at the University of Waikato's Faculty of Education.

The Institute hopes to publish further booklets based on inaugural professorial lectures given by Faculty of Education staff as they happen. In addition, we hope to add past lectures to the series in time.
