College of Education Faculty at the teaching and research forum

The College of Education latest forum featured COE faculty presenting on topics related to promoting scholarship with students and integrating technology into teaching.

Dr. Megan Adkins (Kinesiology Sports Sciences) presentation focused on utilizing interactive health technology monitors to assess physical activity level and time in moderate to vigorous physical activity to improve our teacher activities in managing a classroom and transitions. She provided the audience with a nice overview of how she is making her teaching innovative while providing future PE teachers with practical experiences to better prepare them to keep their own future students active.

Dr. Tina Chasek (Counseling & School Psychology) presented on how educators and students alike often dread research, whether it is teaching a research course, taking a research course, or conducting research. She talked about how teaching and researching with students comes with many challenges including low student motivation, high anxiety, and a perceived lack of relevance to the field. However there is also great opportunity to engage students in research using the classroom as the platform. She provided insights on how to teach research and engage students in conducting research based on her own successful experience.
