Research and Teaching

My expertise and current work are focused on the development of training modules for physical activity practitioners in broad based settings, such as school-based physical education, community recreation, and sports programs. The emerging, global research regarding the importance of physical literacy, as it pertains to life long participation in physical activity, is well documented. If the results of this research are to have any impact on the lifestyles of future generations, there is a pressing need for physically literate leaders who are well schooled in the design and delivery of developmentally appropriate physical activity learning experiences.
