1.        First Readings:

Proposal #3:  ESS 755, Practical Experience in Sport Administration, 1-3 cr., new course

ESS 755 Practical Experience in Sport Administration  1-3 credits.

“This course will provide the student with hands-on, work-related management experience prior to the ESS 788 Internship in Sport Administration. The student will be required to do 65 hours of work per credit in an area of sport or physical activity that is deemed relevant by the program director. Experiences can include, but are not limited to, games and event management, personnel management, marketing and promotions, budget maintenance and fund management, personnel management, marketing and promotions, budget maintenance and fund raising. This experience will be done under the direct supervision of university personnel or a practitioner in the field. Prerequisite: Nine credits with a 3.0 cum. GPA in sport administration program. Repeatable for credit—max 6.”

 

ESS-Sport Administration program, electives, effective fall 2004

Change the Category C—Electives portion for non-thesis option students:

“Elective credits must be related to the field of sport administration or teaching. All electives must be approved by the program director or adviser prior to course enrollment.

 

Up to three credits of ESS 560, Clinical Forum or ESS 755, Practical Experience in Sport Administration. Will count toward this option. Course is repeatable with a maximum six (6) credits. Maximum of three (3) credits will count toward the degree.”

 

This course is designed for students who lack practical experience in particular areas. Some members of the committee were concerned about double-dipping and conflict of interest  between grad assistantship work and this course, and about criteria for approving project and evaluation/supervision of course.

M/S/P to revise the description to say “…direct supervision of university personnel or a practitioner in the field.”       Committee asked for further revision of description.

 

This was a first reading. There will be a second reading.

 ESS 733 Advanced Athletic Training Teaching

This course provides the student with experiences relevant to athletic training education. Students will work directly with athletic training faculty to plan courses, develop syllabi, plan and deliver selected course content, and evaluate students in UW-L’s undergraduate athletic training program. Prerequisite: ESS 734; Open to students certified by the NATABOC (or eligible), or who possess an equivalent athletic training credential. Offered spring semester.

 

ESS 734 Effective Instruction in Athletic Training, 3 cr., New course, effective fall 2004

This course is designed to expose students to a wide variety of teaching methodologies that can be incorporated into athletic training courses. Additionally, relevant topics pertaining to both didactic and clinical education (e.g., standards for appropriate student supervision) in the area of athletic training will be covered. Prerequisite: Open to students certified by the NATABOC (or eligible), or who possess an equivalent athletic training credential. Offered fall semester.

 

ESS 740 Reading/Writing in Athletic Training, 3 cr., New course, effective fall 2004

A survey and analysis of current and classical literature pertaining to the area of athletic training. Readings will include both assigned and student selected materials for the purpose of student presentation to and discussion with the assigned instructor. The class also includes a comprehensive writing assignment, which will culminate in the submission of a manuscript to be reviewed for publication in a scientific journal.  Open to students certified by the NATABOC (or eligible), or who possess an equivalent athletic training credential. Offered fall semester.

 

The concentration will be focused on teaching athletic trainers, not becoming a “master” athletic trainer. There will be very few (perhaps 1) students who will be in the old program. Faculty willing to work with that student to substitute courses in order not to disadvantage student(s).   It reduces the concentration from 16 to 12 credits, with courses being offered less frequently. It will be a two- year concentration.
