Workplace Learning in Physical Education explores the workplace of teaching as a site of professional learning. Using stories and narratives from the experiences of pre-service and beginning teachers, the book takes a closer look at how professional knowledge is developed, investigating the notions of #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;professional#xE2;#xAC;" and #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;workplace learning#xE2;#xAC;" and examining the literature associated with #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;teacher practicum#xE2;#xAC;", #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;fieldwork#xE2;#xAC;" and #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;school experience#xE2;#xAC;".
