Research subject

Physical education (PE) has been traditionally considered as a practical and ‘hands-on’ subject in schools, where close proximity and physical contact is common, particularly in Spain which has a high proximity culture. Significantly, the delivery of PE has changed because of the Covid-19 pandemic, and this brings significant consequences for preservice PE teachers.

The aim of this project is to explore the changes of PE during Covid-19 and the effects on pre-service teachers. Semi-structured interviews are used to produce data with a group of preservice PE teachers from Spain who are undertaking their practicum in PE when the Covid-19 lockdown was imposed in Spain.
