Description


Positive Pedagogy is an athlete-centred, inquiry-based approach that transforms the way we understand learning and coaching in sport and can be successfully employed across a range of different sports and levels of performance. Applied Positive Pedagogy in Sports Coaching: International Cases reflects the uptake of Positive Pedagogy by coaches across different countries and sport settings through its complete focus on their experiences of using it and adapting it to their needs and contexts.

Comprising 17 detailed chapters that examine both Team Sports (Part 1) and Individual Sports (Part 2), this book seeks to provide insight into the opportunities and challenges involved in the application of Positive Pedagogy for sport coaching (PPed). Critically, it also identifies any problems the coaches encountered, how they addressed them and what they learned from these experiences.

Acting as a complementary text to the successful Positive Pedagogy for Sport Coaching, 2nd edition, Applied Positive Pedagogy in Sports Coaching: International Cases is an exciting, applied text that will be vital reading for all practising sports coaches or physical education teachers looking to improve or even transform their professional practice, as well as sports coaching students and researchers.
