Research Statement

My research informs and supports my teaching with my primary areas of interest being the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoT&L) and sport leadership, sport ethics and intercollegiate athletics. Since 2015, I have published 10 articles on pedagogical practices for engaging students synchronously and asynchronously in online teaching, educating doctoral students to teach effectively, a five-step process for effective teaching and learning, metacognition as it contributes to student learning, effective questioning strategies, evaluating classroom time through systematic analysis and student feedback, flipping a class and examining student perceptions of active learning strategies.

Since 2015, in the area of sport management, I have published seven articles on servant leadership in intercollegiate athletics; sport leadership education; synergies of self-determination theory; ethical leadership; emotional intelligence and servant leadership; sport management career decision-making self-efficacy; and the career paths and education, experiences and advancement of athletic directors.

Sport ethics is an area of my greatest interest and expertise within sport management, including three books, two in multiple editions. My book, Introduction to Physical Education, Exercise Science, and Sport, has been published in its 11th edition. Since 2015, I have published two invited chapters on ethical issues in intercollegiate athletics and on commercialism and athletes' rights. I have written an invited book chapter on an historical overview of African American men and women in college sports in the fourth edition of Dana Brooks and Ron Althouse's Racism in College Athletics. These books, chapters and peer-reviewed articles have helped university faculty and students increase their knowledge in teaching and learning and in sport ethics and sport leadership.
