Physical Education Course Descriptions

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE)
PHYSICAL EDUCATION BASIC INSTRUCTION PROGRAM (PE BIP) - GENERAL EDUCATION WELLNESS

As part of general education, all students are required to elect two semester hours of wellness literacy courses. The PE BIP offers a wide variety of activity-based courses that meet general education wellness guidelines.  

PE BIP courses are based on current guidelines for appropriate practice in college/university physical activity instruction programs outlined by the College and University Physical Education Council (CUPEC). Courses reflect the following premises: education as the central mission; emphasis on motor skill acquisition and health-related physical activity; curriculum and instructional practices that reflect sensitivity to individual students and societal needs; and the promotion of values consistent with safe, lifelong participation in health enhancing physical activity.

The PE BIP is dedicated to enhancing student wellness through activity-based learning experiences and is committed to assisting students to become physically educated individuals. A physically educated individual has learned the skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities, participates regularly in physical activity, is physically fit, knows the implications of and the benefits from involvement in physical activities, and values physical activity and its contributions to a healthful lifestyle.

PE BIP courses are graded on a standard A-F letter grade basis.  All courses include wellness literacy online modules, fitness assessments, skill assessments, journal/log, and cognitive assessment.

PE BIP courses are grouped into the following content-related categories:
