Introduction
I have two main lines of research: * Investigating transfer of engagement in physical activity from physical education to other settings * Investigating the relationship between teacher's (pedagogical) content knowledge and student learning In addition, I've been working on the development of instructional strategies and tools for teaching and learning Basic Life Support with or without Automated External Defibrillation.

Children’s participation in physical activity declined from age 7 years (Farooq et al., 2018). Physical education classes alone cannot help children to achieve recommended 60-minute daily moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) (WHO, 2020). Recess as a mandatary part of the school day, offers children an opportunity to actively participate in...

In this paper, we report on the use of the swim golf (SWOLF) index as a method for assessing and predicting swimming performance. The SWOLF index is the sum of the number of arm strokes and the time needed to cover a certain distance. A reduction of the SWOLF index means improved swimming performance since a decrease of this index re ects higher te...
