Abstract

Whilst The Spectrum of Teaching Styles has been around for over 55 years (and contributed much to Physical Education Pedagogy) there is still potential for more work to be done with regards to research. This presentation will briefly outline six areas where questions remain unanswered and are ripe for the picking in terms of research. We believe that research in these areas will provide opportunities to contribute to other areas (Sport, teaching in general as opposed to PE specifically) and demonstrate to the field of education what The Spectrum can achieve in terms of pre-service teacher knowledge, development and skills, teacher development and coaching development. The diagram of The Spectrum focusses on the teacher chain of decision making.

We propose a model that continues to emphasise the learner at the centre of the model. We suggest that the following areas need further development through research:

The Spectrum and sports coaching,
The Spectrum Inventory (SueSee, 2012) – Validity, potential use with teaching and coaching style,
Future research achieves validity and reliability (Chatoupis, 2010),
Development of legitimate and dependable observational methods that conform to The Spectrum,
Using The Spectrum outside of PE,
Canopy Designs (Hewitt et al., 2017) – Frequency of use and effects of use and,
Validating the effects of Production cluster styles.
