Reflection in teacher education programs provides opportunities for discovery, and for the development of a professional identity through perspective taking, judgement and decision-making and in the critical examination of teaching theories of knowledge, and the practical concepts of teaching for learning in physical education. The purpose of the case study was to further understand reflective practice used in the preparation of physical education teachers. This research was inspired by a need to develop in beginning teachers a professional development model of lifelong learning: to be mindful, to reflect and to ask questions about teaching practice
Research methods congruent with interpretive inquiry were used: by observing and engaging pre-service teachers and teacher educators in various reflective techniques, findings identify the application of reflection within physical education teacher education. Findings support inquiry-oriented teacher education and the expanse of descriptive and interpretive research approaches prevalent in educational institutions throughout North America
