Event Description

Full Description:
HMNS professions, the common course and schooling: what’s health got to do with it and why does it matter?

This presentation begins with a review of the recent discussions and debates surrounding the introduction of a Faculty wide Common Course, and most specifically, the question of what exactly is ‘common’ at HMNS? Drawing on historical accounts of our field and the School of HMNS, I want to propose that it is the human BODY which binds our research and teaching endeavours, and that these endeavours have been shaped by the emergence of new sciences which result in privileged voices and authorities. Drawing on the theoretical perspectives and findings of our recent ARC Teachers as Health Workers project, I use the case of schooling to demonstrate the manner in which health has become a privileged “voice” in our field. Notwithstanding this status, our research findings reveal the diversity of intended and unintended outcomes for teachers, students and school HPE.
In conclusion, I provide a range of implications of this research for the future of HPE in school settings, and the implementation of the HABS common course into our degrees.

Dr Louise McCuaig is a Senior Lecturer in the UQ School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences.
