Abstract

The physical education teacher education (PETE) research field is in trouble. The research base of PETE has not grown much in recent years and this is not a healthy sign for the field. I hope this text can bring greater focus to how we think about and facilitate more research on teacher education, and how teacher educators can better support those learning to teach. Many physical education and sport pedagogy researchers are currently more focused on building research careers around how pedagogies of the body and pedagogies of new media impact on young people’s understandings of and engagement with sport and physical activity. There is a primary interest for a cohort or early career academics. There is also a small cadre of academics interested in professional development of physical education teachers (Armour and Yelling 2004; Parker et al. 2012) but this research is not a focus of this commentary. I am delimiting my documents to teacher education as in initial teacher education. This focus does not suggest the research topics alluded to above are not important for physical education. They are.
