Abstract: Biomechanics is an essential core science for understanding humanmovement and for professionals that teach movement like physical educationteachers. Mastery of biomechanics principles is not strong followingtraditional university instruction, and physical education teachers often reportnot using biomechanics in their professional practice. This paper proposes abiomechanics continuing education course for Brazilian physical educationteachers based on meaningful learning theory and the professional skill of qualitativediagnosis of movement. The main elements to be considered in planningpotentially meaningful learning such as student, content, teacher, context andevaluation were summarized and illustrated. With the implementation of this coursewe hope to elicit meaningful learning in essential biomechanical principles incurrent physical education teachers, improve their application of theseprinciples in professional practice, and contribute to improved biomechanicsteaching strategies in other biomechanics courses.Key-words: meaningful learning, qualitative diagnosis, constructivist, teaching, scaffolding.
