Preparation of Leadership Personnel in Adapted Physical Education. Final Report.
McCubbin, Jeffrey A.
This final report discusses the activities and outcomes of a federally funded project designed to prepare leadership personnel in the area of adapted physical education. An element unique to the project was the successful collaborative effort of personnel and resources from the University of Utah and Oregon State University used in the preparation of doctoral level students. Technological advancement in distance education enabled two major research universities to link students and faculty to improve the quality of the learning experiences for students. Course work, field experiences, and scholarly research efforts were implemented to ensure graduates played a significant role in improving the quality of physical education offered to the students with disabilities. Each university has been successful in identifying qualified students and providing direction and guidance in their doctoral programs. Bi-weekly distance education seminars and satellite broadcast of classes has allowed students to broaden their understanding of adapted physical education. The program has successfully graduated 10 students and two have completed all requirements but the dissertation. Additional students have entered the program and will be completing the requirements for the degree using funding from outside sources. Charts indicate the status of the 18 students and a management plan for the project. (CR)
