Sport and Exercise Psychology Academy: A Course-Related Approach with a Twist of Experiential Learning
Johnson, Dennis A.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v84 n9 p37-42 2013
This article chronicles the undergraduate research (UGR) process in the Sport Sciences Department at Wingate University. The main focus is a description of a course-based approach to UGR, followed by a brief summation of the department's experiential component that results in graduating seniors completing an extensive research project to meet university exit exam requirements. Challenges of the process are delineated, as are the benefits to the students and faculty.
