KHE has open courses

Happy New Year! The Department of Kinesiology and Health Education has a few courses that are now open to non-majors. Please encourage any students that may be interested to take them.

Physical Education and Movement Courses:
EDC 370S 12- Teaching Secondary Physical Education (prerequisites waived for this course)
KIN 311 Water Safety Instruction/Lifeguard Training
KIN 226 Advanced Weight Training
KIN 352K Sport Pedagogy
Using a lifespan approach, the purpose of this course is to increase your understanding of sport pedagogy and why it is important that we study it. Pedagogy, the art and science of teaching and effective dissemination of information for learning, is necessary to effectively communicate the multi-sub disciplines of kinesiology and health. In today’s society, it is impossible for someone to learn everything about a topic within the formalized curriculum given the advances in technology and disciplinary knowledge. Accordingly, it is necessary for all to be lifelong learners who continually update their knowledge through web media, interactions with health professionals, and formalized educational experiences such as a personal fitness class, sport participation, health promotional activities and the like. As such, all physical activity professionals need to understand sport pedagogy. This course will provide an introduction of sport pedagogy from a multi-dimensional and disciplinary perspective that specifically identified and addresses the needs of both child and adult learners. No prerequisites for this course
All PED and KIN 119 courses with seats remaining are now open.
