Looking forward to seeing everyone at the ACSM Annual Meeting next week!
Here are a few Exercise Science Education-related events at the conference:
The Exercise Science Education interest group meeting is Thursday, May 30 from 6:15 – 7:45 in Room 305 of the Convention Center.
Please join us for good conversation and refreshments provided by our friends at Wolters Kluwer. Catch up with old friends and network with colleagues. We are excited to present the second annual Wolters Kluwer Innovation in Teaching Award at the meeting. We will discuss plans for the coming year, so bring your ideas! We’ll also discuss submitting session proposals for next year’s meeting…And of course, we will make sure to save plenty of time for other topics YOU want to talk about. Hope to see you there!
Exercise Science education sessions:
May 30, 2019, 2:40 PM – 3:30 PM, CC-300
Priscilla M. Clarkson Tutorial Lecture
Winners without Losers: The Scientific Basis through Implementation for Improving Student Learning
Adam M. Persky, FACSM. University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC
In health science research, we transition between bench-top research to clinical practice and vice-versa. We are asking ourselves to do the same for education – to translate what we know from cognitive psychology, education, and physiology into our classrooms. In this session, the facilitator will translate research from a variety of areas into practical application. At the conclusion of this session you will have a better understanding on how to design courses with key elements to learning, discuss the future direction of curriculum design, and have a bit of fun in the process.
June 1, 2019, 9:00 AM – 9:50 AM, CC-105A
Educator’s Colloquium: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Dixie Stanforth, FACSM. University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX.; Katie M. Smith. Simpson College, Indianola, IA.; Heather Hayes Betz. Albion College, Albion, MI.
How do we continue to ensure our future generation of ACSM professionals know and appreciate the individuals that have helped shape ACSM as we know it today? This participatory session will highlight innovative ways to teach students about the legacy of the organization and the rich history within the field of exercise science.
