An Innovative Track in Bridgewater State College's Master of Science in Physical Education.
Dubois, Paul E.
A description is given of a masters degree program in physical education designed to meet the needs of the fulltime, professionally employed physical education teacher. The program is a totally integrated "package" which provides skills and competencies that can be directly and consistently applied to the inservice teacher's work setting. The program focuses on the development, implementation, and evaluation of a practical project and the writing of a thesis about that project. A student centered approach is used that: (1) directly and efficiently responds to the student's professional growth needs; (2) emphasizes the process of acquiring and applying knowledge; and (3) places the responsibility for learning on the student. Learning is achieved through a variety of techniques, including lectures, workshop activities, tutorial sessions with an instructor/advisor, and independent study. This program description includes an overview of the masters degree curriculum, workshop sequences, student competency assessment, thesis proposal, student performance contracts, student evaluation, and thesis requirements.
