Preparing Students for a Diverse Workplace: Strategies to Improve Dispositions
Melton, Deana; Dail, Teresa
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v81 n9 p25-31, 46 Nov-Dec 2010
The curriculum for kinesiology students typically includes foundation courses focused on the scientific principles underlying human movement. Modifications for gender, age, and physical ability are also commonly included in these courses. Rarely addressed, however, are students' dispositions toward diverse groups. This article examines several issues related to diversity and argues that students may benefit from an examination of their own biases and preconceived notions before entering the workforce. Specific strategies are provided to prepare kinesiology students for work in a multicultural society. (Contains 2 figures.)
