The general goal of the undergraduate Kinesiology Pedagogy Track is to prepare teachers for careers in schools. Specific goals for the pedagogy track are that students will demonstrate skill and knowledge of a variety of movement activities including fundamental motor skills, dance, fitness, adventure, and sports education; apply knowledge about human movement from the different subdisciplines to the teaching of physical education; analyze and evaluate human motor performance of individuals in various age groups and skill levels and evaluate and reflect on one's own teaching performance using systematic techniques; and plan, implement, and manage effective lessons.
The Master of Education Degree in Physical Education, Pedagogy is designed to meet the needs of state certified teachers wishing to continue an in-depth study of physical education pedagogy including the study of teaching, teacher education, and curriculum for academic and/or professional careers in physical education pedagogy. Another emphasis is designed to provide both a theoretical and practical background for the teacher, coach, or administrator of physical education and sports programs in schools at the elementary or secondary level.
