On this weeks episode we have Celia sitting down with Kylie Thompson from the University of Waikato. Throughout this episode there is plenty of rich discussion about Kylie’s transition from Secondary to Tertiary, initial teacher education, threshold concepts and the challenges facing primary school teachers trying to incorporate quality physical education into their teaching programmes.
Kylie is currently lecturing in Health and PE at the University of Waikato. She was previously an HOD in Auckland, a national moderator at NZQA, an advisor for PENZ, and has just started her doctorate which aims to explore social and emotional learning in PE. Kylie is happiest when adventuring around the north island with her wife and two boys in their bright orange pop top caravan.
