Pre-service training in secondary education and in-service training leading to a diploma in primary education in physical education in Geneva: What teaching tradition(s)?
This paper aims to describe and analyze the development of two physical education teacher training programs at the University of Geneva, regarding the teaching traditions that have shaped them: (a) FORENSEC (secondary education); (b) DAS MDAS (primary education). Its methodology follows the usual steps of document analysis. The analysis of these programs’ main reference documents shows that they are mainly anchored in a teaching tradition of physical education as physical culture education. This anchoring is the result of both a conscious choice of the teaching staff and structural factors that are favorable to it, or even determine it.
