Influence of a PPed university course on coaches’ practice on New Zealand. (2020)
Growth in university sport coaching programs offers a promising means of spreading the uptake of GBA (game-based approaches) due to the greater opportunity they offer to initiate change in coaching. Although studies have been conducted on higher education coach education with some on GBA, none have looked at the efficacy of the HE pedagogy used. This chapter draws on a study that inquired into the influence of a course on Positive Pedagogy for sport coaching taught in a in a New Zealand university. It focuses on six on final year students for a six moth period following completion of the course and how they adapted PPed to their coaching needs, opportunities and limitations as coaches outside the university. It provides useful insights into how young coaches taking up PPed meet the challenges involved.
