This paper describes an inquiry into a sport management program in a New Zealand University. It provides evaluation based on feedback from sport organizations and graduates about their experiences of the sport management program practicum.
The purpose of this project was to guide tertiary teachers of Exercise & Sport Science in ways that could improve the rigour of Exercise & Sport Science as a scientific discipline and lead to better learning outcomes for undergraduates.
The project aimed to develop and document effective strategies that facilitate the co-construction of an initial teacher education (ITE) curriculum. The report will be of interest to those involved in the education of teachers and their continuing professional development.
