The Examination of a Mentoring Relationship during a Metadiscrete Physical Education Field Experience
Bower, Glenna G.; Bonnett, Stephanie
ICHPER-SD Journal of Research, v4 n2 p19-25 Fall-Win 2009
Universities strive to graduate well-rounded individuals with opportunities to gain knowledge in the classroom and experience in the "real world". Therefore, many colleges focus their attention to offering discrete field experiences. However, few universities offer metadiscrete field experiences, with students majoring in exercise science or kinesiology, where the faculty member acts as a mentor playing a dual role of professor in the academic setting and a practitioner in the field. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the mentoring relationship within a physical education (exercise science or kinesiology majors) metadiscrete field experience. (Contains 3 figures.)
