I am a PhD student at Liverpool John Moores University. For my PhD project, I am looking at the development and use of a qualitative method for exploring self-determined motivation in 5-7 year old children. This is within a wider project called SAMPLE-PE, where this is the psychological component of a motor competence cluster intervention within primary physical education.
