Dr Donna Windard - Programme Leader

Dr Donna Windard - Programme Leader

I specialise in research which increases our understanding of the impact of recent UK sport and educational policies on the structure and organisation of PE, teachers' ideologies and teachers' pedagogies. I currently supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate students at Lincoln, and contribute to a number of research groups including the Health Advancement Research Team, and Youth Sport Research Group.

School Staff List

Welcome to BSc (Hons) Physical Education and Sport

The long-standing importance placed on physical education, not only as a subject for teaching and learning, but as a vehicle for improving health, behaviour, sports participation, and performance, means that it continues to have political and educational significance across the UK.

Lincoln’s BSc (Hons) Physical Education and Sport degree is a multi-disciplinary programme. It utilises current research, policy, and practice in order to develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding relevant to the physical education and sport sector.

The course has been designed for those who have a desire to work with young people in schools or youth sport settings. Engagement in real-world activities is integral to the programme. Students can develop their teaching abilities, knowledge, and experience of curriculum activities, while having opportunities to gain real-world experience through practical sessions and placements in a school or youth sport setting.

A key aim of the degree is to prepare students for life beyond graduation and to provide a sound basis for undertaking a postgraduate teaching qualification or wider employment within schools and youth sport settings.

Teaching and Learning During Covid-19

At Lincoln, Covid-19 has encouraged us to review our practices and, as a result, to take the opportunity to find new ways to enhance the student experience. We have made changes to our teaching and learning approach and to our campus, to ensure that students and staff can enjoy a safe and positive learning experience. We will continue to follow Government guidance and work closely with the local Public Health experts as the situation progresses, and adapt our teaching and learning accordingly to keep our campus as safe as possible.

Industry Links

The School of Sport and Exercise Science has strong industry links. This includes its close relationship with Lincoln City Football Club.

Research

Opportunities exist for students to conduct their own independent research and to work alongside research-active academic staff on projects at local and national levels. The School’s Youth Sport Research Group and the Health Advancement

Research Team have conducted studies on topics including school sports partnerships, disability in sport, and gifted and talented development in young people.

There are opportunities for students to apply theory to practical settings, including in school placements. The School of Sport and Exercise Science will aim to cover all reasonable costs associated with work placements, including travel. The College of

Social Science’s Work Opportunities Hub, which looks to identify suitable placements for students, can help those seeking to enhance their studies with work experience.

Facilities

Students can benefit from access to specialist equipment in the University’s Human Performance Centre for study and research. Our fully-equipped Sports Centre comprises a gym, double sports hall, squash courts, dance studio, and all-weather pitches.

Career Opportunities

Previous students have successfully progressed on to School-centred Teacher Training or PGCEs to become PE teachers. Opportunities are available both in Lincoln and throughout the UK. Alternatively, students may choose to progress to Master’s programmes in education, enter the Armed Forces, or work in sport development.

"This course is perfect for anyone interested in teaching physical education. It combines both practical and theoretical skills which are needed to be successful in the physical education world."
