ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to employ a combined problem-based learning (PBL) and experiential learning theory (ELT) methodology as a means of engaging students on an undergraduate physical education (PE) and sport pedagogy module. Focus groups were conducted to investigate the students’ and tutors’ responses to the teaching approach. The results indicated that the method of teaching was associated with students feeling confident about their critical knowledge and understanding of contemporary issue in PE, their presentation and discussion skills, and a positive engagement with the module. Overall the approach was highly beneficial to the student learning experience.
