Educational Perceptions vs. Reality; Classroom and Clinical Education
Knight, Kenneth L.
Athletic Training Education Journal, v1 n2 p15-17 Apr-Dec 2006
There are two issues relating to athletic training education for which perception may be overshadowing reality. They are "educators vs. clinicians" and "the relative value of clinical vs. class room instruction." The author's desire is to convince every athletic trainer to use language that does not perpetuate philosophies that he feels are detrimental to the profession. Knowing this is impossible, his hope is that he can bolster the arguments of those who agree with him, and sway some who either are on the fence or have an opposing view to his way of thinking. In this article, the author shares his opinions on classroom and clinical education.
