This paper examines the use of an experience-based writing project as a teaching and learning tool in a philosophy of exercise science and human movement module. It details the format and evaluation criteria for the project, which involves a descriptive and reflective first-person account of a significant personal experience in a sport or leisure related activity and considers how the account is developed in a more philosophically informed manner. This paper provides illustrations of the writing process and also details several teaching and learning support activities. The paper concludes with an assessment of the educational advantages of this student-centred approach to learning, including its applicability to other disciplines and fields of study.
