AbstractThe purpose of this paper was to review the literature around pedagogical and curricular change in physical education that relates to teachers experience of models-based practice. This review of research on teachers’ perceptions and use of models-based practice was undertaken in an effort to ascertain the ways in which practitioners interpreted this type of change in practice. Conclusion was made: While models-based practice has begun to help practitioners to change and develop their pedagogies and curriculum, we are still a way away from understanding the impact of changing to a models-based approach. Research needs to be focused beyond the initial use of the model(s) and one needs to explore the longitudinal impact of adopting a multi-model curriculum. Furthermore, advocates of models-based practice need to explore the pedagogical and curricular ramifications on teachers of the long-term adoption of a models-based approach.
