Professional learning communities (PLC) has become one of the most used strategies not only in teachers’ professional development, but also with student learning. However, investigations that have been conducted while strengthening the knowledge accumulated about the theme, have also led us to misunderstand PLCs’ concepts, challenges, and benefits. Seeking to analyzing this situation in Physical Education, an international scoping review is currently being conducted. This investigation aims to discover what has been published about PLCs in physical education field. Five researchers from Europe (Dr Melissa Parker), U.S. (Dr Kevin Patton), Australia (Dr Carla Luguetti), Korea )Dr Okseon Lee) and Brazil (Dr Luiza Gonçalves) are involved in this project. Data have been collected through six databases - Academic Search Elite EBSCO, ERIC, SportDiscus, Web of Science, Open access theses and dissertations, PROQuest. It will be included complete papers, book chapters, dissertations and theses that discussed PLC in PE in 11 languages.
