A Journey of Many Dimensions: Reflections on Change and Possibility
DePauw, Karen P.
Quest, v62 n4 p335-347 Nov 2010
This article presents the author's nineteenth Delphine Hanna commemorative lecture that focuses on a journey of many dimensions. Dr. Delphine Hanna, noted scholar and teacher, undertook a journey of many dimensions. As stated so eloquently by Minnie Linn, "there is something ageless and prophetic in the portrait of Dr. Delphine Hanna, in academic garb, reflecting the objective detachment of the scientist, the humanitarian instinct of the physician, the insight of the visionary educator, the inspiration of the architect of ideas with a future. Sound purpose and excellence of performance in pursuit of it characterized her endeavor. The author shares how Dr. Delphine Hanna's journey begins and argues that in continuing Dr. Hanna's journey, one must understand the university and kinesiology and physical education in the context of today's reality and tomorrow's future. She discusses four types of changes and how they can be used effectively in implementing institutional transformation. She offers an example of change within kinesiology and physical education (sport) and then a broader challenge. She stresses that many educators have experienced a journey of many dimensions. Their challenge today is to continue the journey and to pursue an agenda for social change. (Contains 2 figures.)
