A.understanding the notion of Physical Literacy, 

B.appreciating the importance of embracing a healthy lifestyle on a personal level, but also

C.becoming skilled and prepared on how to promote awareness of PL in PE classes with primary and secondary school students as part of their future careers. 

More specifically, to: 

1.Develop a structure through which mapping the pedagogical theoretical foundation of PL linked to the needs of individuals is enabled. 

2.Identify the learning outcomes that support the pedagogical framework. 

3.Develop the learning activities that support the pedagogical framework. 

4.Design learning material content outline to support the pedagogical framework. 

5.Create the learning material to support the pedagogical framework. 

6.Translate and adapt the learning material where necessary

The evidence review for this ePhysLi project adopted a narrative review approach which explored the principles and concepts related to the project.  The review aimed to identify and summarise recent or current literature to deepen understanding in the research area. Evidence included was empirical evidence, which had come from published, peer-reviewed research, and grey literature, related to physical literacy, physical education, sport pedagogy, primary and secondary school teaching, and gamification.
