Nonlinear Pedagogy, underpinned by Ecological Dynamics, focuses on encouraging exploratory learning and an emphasis on acquiring individualized movement behaviours. In the last decade, practitioners and academics have increasingly embraced the ideas and design principles that support Nonlinear Pedagogy in supporting learners to enhance physical literacy. However, little is known about the relevance of professional development for Nonlinear Pedagogy among practitioners such as PE teachers. In this presentation, findings from an empirical study would be shared to examine the impact of a professional development programme on enhancing the knowledge and enactment of Nonlinear Pedagogy in Physical Education in the Singapore context. The focus of the professional development programme was to encourage the transformation of practice (teaching and learning) to support greater exploratory and adaptive learning for students. Implications on the use of a learning and evaluation tool to examine nonlinearity in practices will also be discussed in this sharing.
