Abstract


This study aimed at Investigating the Physical Education graduates and prospective teachers about their academic preparation program. This may help us identify the strengths and weaknesses of the program and bridge the gap between the PE teacher education and the requirements of the field practice. Thus a questionnaire including the theoretical courses, the practical courses and the elective courses was developed and validated, and then was administered to 145 female and male teachers and 50 student teachers. The findings of the study showed the relevance of most of the theoretical and practical courses offered in the department to the teachers’ career. It also showed that the program needs to include some other courses such as aquatic and fighting sport. Further, some elective courses should be offered such as posture education, scientific research, recreation, handicapped education, and sport management. Moreover, the credit hours of the specialized courses should be increased.
