Author(s): Munkaila Seibu and Regina Akuffo Darko
The purpose of this research was to analyse effective utilisation of allocated time of student interns during their practical physical education lessons. Descriptive research design was used for this study. The population comprised 10 interns from the department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Sports for the 2015/2016 academic year. Each of the interns’ 40 minute lessons were videotaped. Their motor behaviours were coded and analyzed using the Academic learning time-physical education (ALT-PE) observational instrument with inter-observer reliability coefficient of 0.83. The results of the study under context level indicated that interns’ spent most of their class time (42.13%) on general content with managerial episodes recording 24.13% as the highest. It was also observed that interns spent only 19.95% of the class time on skill practice. Finally, ALT-PE also recorded 6.33% of the class time. The study concluded that interns lack the strategies of effective management of class time. It was recommended that Physical Education lecturers and mentors should expose interns to best instructional strategies for ALT-PE to improve students’ motor skill acquisition and mastery.
