Abstract

New interactive modalities are being introduced into the Physical Education classroom but very little research has been conducted on its effectiveness. This paper reports on an action study whose aim was to pilot test a course-specific multimedia DVD as a resource in teaching a college-level physical education instructors course. This integrated program (lecture, demonstration, and DVD combination) was trialed in one class, with a second class serving as a control (lecture and demonstration only). All students were tested on their theoretical knowledge and practical skills before, during and at the end of the course. The experimental group was found to have scored higher in the practical test at the end of the course but no differences were found in theoretical knowledge between the two groups. Attitude questionnaire results showed that students expressed highly positive opinions of the DVD, and 93% plan on using it as a resource in the future.
