Study of the Value Orientation of Physical Education

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 227)


Currently, the value orientation of China’s Physical Education (PE) reform is of binary opposition, which was demonstrated in terms of education aim, teaching strategies, and education evaluation. The binary opposition is rooted in the misinterpretation of quality-oriented education. In the process of developing quality-oriented education, we still need to adjust in the aspects of teacher training, specialty course setup in teachers colleges and management system. An effective approach to eliminating the cognitive dissonance is to integrate humanism and scientism, exam-oriented education and quality-oriented, the traditional and new curriculum views, etc.
