Abstract

Research indicates that sexist, heterosexist and homophobic attitudes and practices are prevalent in Physical Education, Human Movement, and other sport-related academic courses. Anecdotal evidence from Victoria University colleagues and reports from course reviews suggest that sexist, heterosexist and homophobic attitudes find their way into Bachelor of Applied Science - Human Movement teaching/learning practices and student culture.
