This book provides an overview of current issues being discussed in higher-education kinesiology and sport pedagogy departments, as well as current research being conducted in physical education, physical education preparatory programs, and kinesiology departments more generally.  Those who are served valuable content from this publication include kinesiology faculty, and college/university instructors who prepare future physical educators, future coaches, and future allied-health professionals and movement specialists, such as personal trainers, athletic trainers, physical therapists, etc.

This book is composed of an assortment of both qualitative and quantitative research. Some chapters include empirically collected data, others are more philosophical ‘think-pieces’ — representing an array of current issues, research foci, methodologies, and perspectives in the field of kinesiology.

Contributing authors hail from institutions all over the United States – ranging from Texas, Washington, Illinois, Georgia, and Alabama – providing a broad and rich variety of perspectives, opinions, and experiences in the field.

Each chapter is specific to an important line of research or concept being explored in higher-education kinesiology and sport pedagogy. Readers will find that most chapters do not overlap in particular concept, but rather they all generally apply to the advancement of leadership, mentorship, teaching and conducting research in kinesiology and sport pedagogy – making the book a broad overview of current topics and the status of modern kinesiology departments in higher education.
