    Abstract

    There has been a continuous increase in enrolments within teacher education programs in recent years delivered via online and external modes. Such levels of enrolment have raised discussion around the theory-practice nexus and whether pre-service teachers (PSTs) can optimally engage with practical learning components via online platforms. This paper provides insight into the potential and feasibility of using GoPro video technology as an innovation in online teacher education delivery of practical physical education (PE) classes. Upon completion of the university semester, qualitative data was collected detailing the generalist PSTs’ perceptions relating to the potential of using GoPro video footage to capture practical PE classes. Field note observations also documented implementation considerations for integrating GoPro technology into practical PE lessons. The findings from the GoPro trial provide valuable insight for teacher education providers for future planning and delivery of university practical PE classes online
