ABSTRACT
The article presents a critique of Richard Tinning's analysis of dominant discourses, problem setting, and teacher education pedagogies. Tinning's theories of discourse and problem setting are questioned, but his call for alternative pedagogies is agreed with. The author emphasizes the need for practice-centered orientation in papers concerning the teaching of physical education.
