Research Statement

My research informs and supports my teaching with my primary areas of scholarly endeavors in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoT&L) and in sport leadership, sport ethics, and intercollegiate athletics. Since 2015 in SoT&L, I have published eight peer-reviewed articles on these topics: (1) metacognition as it contributes to student learning; (2) effective questioning strategies; (3) evaluating classroom time through systematic analysis and student feedback; (4) enhancing undergraduate students' research and writing; (5) flipping a class; (6) examining student perceptions of learning strategies; (7) student perceptions of active learning; and (8) using technology-nested instructional strategies to enhance student learning. Since 2015 in the area of sport management, I have published seven peer-reviewed articles: (1) two articles on servant leadership in intercollegiate athletics; (2) sport leadership education; (3) synergies of self-determination theory, ethical leadership, emotional intelligence, and servant leadership; (4) sport management career decision-making self-efficacy; and (5) two articles on athletic directors—career paths and their education, experiences, and advancement.

Sport ethics is an area of my greatest interest and expertise within sport management, including three books, two in multiple editions. The 11th edition of my Introduction to physical education, exercise science, and sport has been published. Since 2015, I have published two invited chapters on ethical issues in intercollegiate athletics and on commercialism and athletes' rights in two edited books by Eddie Comeaux. I have published an invited 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. I have published a chapter on focusing on student learning in an edited book for college teaching assistants.
