Abstract

There are many influencing factors in the quality of physical education. Physical education professionals continue to aim to develop quality programs for physical education. This study aimed to determine the quality of physical education in teacher education as experienced by the physical education instructors and students. This also aimed to find out the needs of the respondents and their recommendations to achieve high quality of physical education in teacher education. The study revealed that the level of quality of physical education as experienced by the students is high, while the instructors experience a very high level of quality of physical education. Thus, there is a significant difference in the levels of quality of physical education in teacher education as experienced by the students and the instructors. When grouped according to the program they are in, the students do not vary in their experience on the level of quality of physical education in teacher education. To improve the quality of physical education, the students and the instructors need more related materials and equipment in teaching and learning physical education. The respondents suggest and recommend improved teaching methods and strategies for better physical education quality in teacher education.
