English abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate how physical education (P.E) teachers in Sweden perceive their education in relation to their actual practice of the profession, both in terms of the scope of different educational areas during teacher education and the perceived value of those areas. This was done through a questionnaire sent to P.E teachers in Sweden, receiving 85 answers. Previous research has shown that teacher education often fails to prepare the students for the profession, and often fail to change the perception of the teacher role that the students have at the beginning of the teacher education. Therefore, the current study tries to use a phenomenological approach to find out what areas of the teacher education that P.E teachers perceive as having been premiered with regards to time, as well as the perceived value of all areas of teacher education. The results of this study show that the respondents primarily perceived research methods, content knowledge and practical development of different sport skills to be the primary focus of the teacher education. Those areas, with the exception of research methods, are also the ones perceived to be most important to the profession. At the same time many respondents criticise this. They claim that the teacher education should focus more on learning to teach others, rather than developing their own sporting skills. The main flaw in teacher education appears to be communication, and the education in areas related to communication. Many respondents highlight the lack of education in conflict management and communication as the most prominent area not being taught enough, together with social factors such as social class and gender. Teacher education seems to be perceived as somewhat successful in the choice of areas being taught, with some apparent holes. Further research would be needed to determine the factors behind the results, with regards to the teachers themselves and their opinions.
