Abstract

This paper overviews the influence of Daryl Siedentop on Australian physical education research. The Sport Education in Physical Education Project (SEPEP) project which aligned the Sport Education model (SEM) to the nascent development of Australian curriculum in the 1990s provides the backdrop to explore the re-contextualisation and development of the SEM in Australia. The SEM emphasizing developing movement competency as one of its three educational objectives provided a context for game-based approaches. In Australia, this led to new relationships between the SEM and game-based pedagogies being explored and expressed in hybrid developments. Figurational sociology is used to provide unique insight into the strong influence of Siedentop’s work on Australian physical education and to consider prospects for sustained influence.
