There are many reasons explaining why students choose one professional project and/or an academic programme. Usually, they consider higher education according to various aspects focusing on the content of the programme as well as on professions to which the latter leads. This study is in the field on comparative education. It offers a comprehensive reading of two education systems in a spirit of openness and expansion of knowledge. With inspiration from two studies conducted in the education of physical educators in very different cultural contexts (Research Group MJS, 1993, for Algeria – Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire, 2003, for French-speaking Belgium), we have assumed that the students’ motives for registering in studies in physical education should differ considerably. The purpose of this research has therefore been to determine the reasons motivating students to begin a physical education programme at the university or at a non university context. Our research was based, firstly, on the analysis of official texts concerning the organization of higher education in the field of physical education and, secondly, on data collected from the actions involved in four educational institutions, two in the Algiers region and two in the Liege region. In both cultural contexts, one institution belonged to one university and the other one was organized in a non university context. Our results relate to a total sample of 290 subjects (40 members of teaching staffs, 108 students and 142 graduates). The staff members were interviewed while the subjects of two other groups have responded to questionnaires. The Arabic version of each instrument was translated from an original French version. One expert has assured the validity check. In this paper, we are focusing our attention on the analysis of the responses provided by the three types of actors to a question aiming to identify, through four levels Lickert scales, the degree of importance accorded by subject to nine reasons of registration for studies in physical education. Answer were encoded in a computer database and processed using the Statistica software (Stat Soft, 2006). No significant difference was identified when comparing the answers of respondents. However, we noticed that the love of sport and the desire to do sport belonged to the most important reasons for the registration of the new students for training programs in physical education. Cultural context does not seem to affect the opinions of the subjects. [less ▲]

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is characterised by functional impairments (fatigue, motor weakness, spasticity, poor balance) and limitations in social functioning. Accordingly, persons with MS are more affected by sedentarity and not enough aware of their physical capacities. Finally, those behaviours lead to physical deconditioning and general poor health in this population. To encourage physical activity with MS people, a specific coaching programme whereby MS patient are individually supported by a sport coach has been launched at the University Hospital Center of Liège. In this context this study aimed to (1) describe the intervention of the coach ;(2) link emotional competencies and behaviors of the coach ; (3) propose recommendations to improve MS patient’s physical activity management. Behaviors, attitudes, values, representations and emotional competencies of seven coaches were analyzed using both visible (audio and video recording) and invisible (questionnaires and interviews) data. Results show that coaching efficacy with MS patient implies a high support and cooperation level of the coach and a highly specific approach characterized by a systematic appraisal of patient’s behaviors revealing his current psychological and physical state. Recommendations for the coach education with an emphasis on social and emotional skills are discussed. [less ▲]

In the context of education of the beginning Belgian handball coaches, we are currently developing a project based on a mixed program (presential and e-learning) and on the use of a competencies based framework. We wish to test tools that could be, in a long term perspective, extended to the entire course of this level of preparation but also to other contexts. For this, we are analyzing processes aiming to transfer the technology developed to the physical education teacher education. Gradually, changes are made in order to offer training ever closer to the professsional reality, more consistent, with more meaning for the participants and involving them more in a process of knowledge building.

Health is a particularly important concern in the today’s society as expenses linked to health problems are continuously increasing. Actions aiming to limit the phenomenon are needed and one of the priorities consists to fight against the increasing prevalence of obesity. In this field, the emphasis has been set on nutrition and sedentariness. It clearly appears that school and physical education are key sectors that should be directly involved in the approach that should be implemented (Young & William, 1989; WHO, 2001). At school, any project that is focused on any aspect of the health would require the involvement of all actors: (1) the school principal who is in charge of the development of the school’s project and to orient the strategic decisions, and; (2) all other actors of the school life such the pedagogical staff but also the students and their parents as well as the medical structures if they exist. When it is question of promotion of a long life physically active lifestyle, the Scientific Statement from the American Heart Association Council (Pate et al., 2006) underlines five main dimensions that should be considered in order to determine the emphasis that one particular school provides: (1) physical education; (2) active transportation; (3) life environment (recesses, spaces); (4) sport at school, and; (5) physical activity in the classroom. We are considering that the presence of physical activity in the written educational school policy represents a sixth determining dimension that should be accessed in that perspective. In the analysis of 54 out of the 514 French speaking schools of Belgium, we showed that the mean score reached 9/20 with PA policy being the worst aspect (4.80/20) and facilities being the best (12.3/20). It seemed that the role that schools could play today in PA promotion is quite limited. These findings have been confirmed in another study based on 1997 Cale’s model of active school (Van Hoye, Motter & Cloes, 2009). On the other hand, a third study underlined that it was possible to improve the involvement of one primary school in PA promotion through one action research (Cloes & Dequenne, 2009). In the latter study, OPHEA (2009) model of active school was considered. Finally, other examples of initiatives aiming to increase school in the development of an active lifestyle will be described (L’école bouge, 2006). As stated by Tappe & Burgeson (2004), physical education should be considered as the corner stone of PA promotion at school. In fact, the physical education teacher is definitely the only teacher whose specific preparation allows developing theoretical and practical concepts related to physical activity and its effects on health. Beyond the fight against sedentariness, PE teachers are able to contribute effectively to the mastery of many other competences involved in the development of physically educated persons (NASPE, 1992). Nevertheless, in order to meet the requirements, it is needed that PE respects two current concepts: literacy and accountability. It means that PE has to develop attitudes, knowledge and competences that would be used lifelong by the students, on one hand; to bring concrete modifications in youths, on the other hand. Several principles should be applied to encourage students to adopt an active lifestyle: (1) being a model; (2) updating ones’ knowledge; (3) knowing ones’ students; (4) planning; (5) acting; (6) controlling. Theoretical foundations and examples will be provided in the presentation. Based on Cloes, Del Zotto and Motter (2009), several categories of specific actions are proposed by PE teachers in order to promote an active life style in their students. These actions aim to motivate students to be active, increase time on task or attendance or to encourage students to open their mind to a more positive attitude towards PA. As they mentioned, appreciating PE might be a first step in the direction of a lifelong active lifestyle In conclusion, we consider that PE teachers need to become aware about the change in the definition of their role. In 40 years, they passed from teaching gymnastics to teaching sports while the society asks them today to become agents of the development of lifelong PA competences. It means that, during initial or continuous preparation, PE teachers’ educators need to develop original activities that can help practitioners to develop their own actions on the field. According to the current development of the research on teacher education, this underlines the importance of collaborative research as well as the development of communities of practice. Strategies are existing and should be shared. Use of modern tools of communication represents a promising way to reach success. It should also be determining that professionals and researchers would learn to work together more closely. [less ▲]

Literature emphasizes the increasing prevalence of obesity. This phenomenon is related to growing health problems and to their cost for the society in terms of health expenses as well as lack of human well-being. Sedentary lifestyle is systematically pointed out as one of the determining factors at the origin of this situation. WHO (2001) underlined the need of a multifactorial action while Pate et al. (2006) highlighted the school’s central role. Within the school, it seems that the physical education (PE) teacher represents the corner stone of any process aiming to promote physical activity (PA) (USDHHS, 1996; Tappe & Burgeson, 2004). Nevertheless, when determining if PE teachers are ready to be the expected PA promoters, it appears that, in Wallonia (as it could be the case in other countries), several data show that the answer is not really positive. It seems that PE teachers need some support in order to make youths physically active, and adopting a healthy lifestyle. In fact, proposing traditional lessons focusing on sport would not be sufficient to reach these objectives. In this way, PE teacher educators should have two priorities: (1) to clarify the PE teachers’ representations of PA and (2) to identify and share strategies aiming to define their potential actions on the field. The presentation illustrated four approaches that were experimented at the University of Liege in pre- and in-service PE teacher education. The major goal of the speech was to involve the participants by stimulating reflexibility and content development. Four questions have been in the centre of the activity: (1) What is physical Activity? (2) What must be done, finally? (3) How to deal with arguments against practice? (4) What could do PE teachers to promote an active lifestyle? Each question was discussed through distinct approaches that could be used by the participants in their own practice. [less ▲]

In France and in the Anglo-Saxon countries, socioconstructivist approach tends currently to be increasingly used by physical education teachers. However, it seems that their colleagues from the Wallonia-Brussels Community are much more traditional in the sense that they focus largely on "technicist” approaches. The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent they know the principles of this new approach and consider that they apply it in their classes. We collected 123 questionnaires completed online by secondary school level physical education teachers, contacted by using the "snowball" sampling technique. Despite the increase of the socioconstructivism literature, the development of specific courses focusing on it in physical education teacher education programs or the organization of specific inservice activities, 4 out of 10 teachers had no idea about what this concept means. The answers given by the subjects when they had to define the concept or to describe teaching situations in which they applied it confirmed this finding. Our study illustrates the difficulties faced by practitioners when it comes to update their knowledge on the one hand, to incorporate new concepts into their practice, on the other hand. The findings emphasize the gap between the development of educational theories and their appropriation on the field. [less ▲]

En Communauté française de Belgique, une vingtaine de bénévoles sont nécessaires pour un club de football. Alors que depuis trente ou quarante ans, la société évolue vers toujours plus d'individualisme et que l'argent tient une place déterminante, même dans le sport, ces bénévoles représentent un contre-pouvoir, défendant un autre système de valeur, où l'altruisme occupe une place importante. Motivés par la passion du sport, ils trouvent plaisir, épanouissement et reconnaissance sociale en donnant de leur temps, pour remplir diverses fonctions, plus ou moins importantes selon le statut amateur ou professionnel du club. Coup de chapeau à ces hommes et femmes de l'ombre à qui toutes les stars du football doivent une part de leur réussite et de leur gloire. [less ▲]
