Recruiting Future Physical Education Teachers through Experiential Learning
Rady, Amy Meltzer; Schmidt, Gordon
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v82 n7 p13-16, 56 Sep 2011
A university open house attracts students and parents who are interested in learning about the institution's mission and specialized offerings. The traditional approach to an open house involves a meet-and-greet session and a lecture by a faculty member who describes the program and necessary requirements for graduation, followed by a tour of the campus, meetings with administrators, and general information about the university. In the experiential-learning model, prospective students have an opportunity to learn from the undergraduate students who are currently in the program and to participate in the actual learning process, which can have a more significant effect on students' choice of institution and department. (Contains 4 figures and 1 table.)
