We are in the penultimate week of the Sport Coaching Pedagogy unit at the University of Canberra.
This week’s presentation looks at teaching and coaching as occupations and vocations.
I am hopeful that some of the themes that we have been exploring throughout the unit come together here as we consider the impetus to teach and coach.
My thinking about vocation has been informed by Max Weber’s work.
In the presentation I use references from Max Weber, Steven Johnson, Hian Koh and Larry Killough, Chris Cushion, Kathy Armour and Robyn Jones, Lawrie Woodman, Melissa Wiman, Alan Salmoni and Craig Hall, Virpi Heikkila, Satu Uusiautti and Kaarina Maatta.
