Abstract

The aim of the studies was to provide novel insight into understanding student and teacher experiences in physical education. Study one was focused on student motivation in high school physical education using latent profile analysis. In study two, a cluster randomized controlled trial was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of student-centered learning strategies for enhancing students' autonomous motivation for physical education. In study three, emotional intelligence and need satisfaction in workplace relationships were examined as predictors of teachers' intrinsic motivation for teaching physical education. Results collectively highlighted the role of need satisfaction and autonomous forms of motivation for students and teachers, and accentuated the benefits of student-centered learning styles.
