Abstract [en]

Sport is described as an international language. The sport didactic competence is argued to arise when theoretical subject knowledge regarding the human body in motion is combined with practical pedagogical knowledge in sport and physical education. A limitation in such perspective is its inability to handle research in social science regarding physical education. This article reports a study of mandatory course literature at four PETE’s (physical education teacher education) in Sweden. The course literature chosen treats education and training in ball games, dance, swimming and orienteering. The data is based on 5700 pages or 55 books, compendiums and articles. The purposes were to study the language in the literature and to discuss possible implications for the school subject physical education. An analytic sport didactic tool based on social sciences was constructed. The reflection of sport didactic is here treated as synonym to the reflection of the methodology of sport teaching (and learning) process. Despite the academic settings, the analysis show that the language of sport and “proven experience” dominates as perspectives in the literature. In some cases attempts have been made to construct a theoretical framework and a language to describe teaching models. But these are not compatible with the Swedish national curricula and results from PE research. In addition, these theoretical frameworks are based on the logic of sport. The analysis also shows a general lack of social science perspectives. In this way the scientific language is transformed into a sport utility with philosophical standpoints in alignment with those in the core of natural science. Based on the study it is necessary to claim the need of a shared interpretation frame, a shared language - separate from the language of sport - for discussions from a social science perspective concerning physical education in school and in spare time.
