The AAHPERD Student Services Committee is preparing this mini-conference that will be valuable for students in a four-year Undergraduate Program and students in a five-year Masters-level Teacher Education Program that leads to an initial teaching license. This multi-day schedule will allow students who arrive after Wednesday to attend the Thursday and Friday morning sessions. We invite students to attend as many of the sessions as possible. When designing the schedule, the Student Services Committee made an effort to avoid conflicts with other sessions that the students should attend.
The Highlights for the Forum:
Wednesday, 8:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.
This session will start with a lively Ice Breaker activity. Don't miss this opportunity to meet students from across the country. A presentation about two Hot Topics in our field follows: Incorporating Core Subjects in to the PE Curriculum and Let's Move! Active Schools. Students will attend Wednesday's General Session as a group and be recognized.
Thursday, 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
This session will be sponsored by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and will include a reception and presentation by USADA about the TrueSport curriculum. The program also includes three panel discussions: the Job Hunting Process, On the Job the First Year and Graduate School. Get advice and answers to the questions that are on your mind!
Friday, 10:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
This session includes a Future Professionals Networking Session with members of the North American Society of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, Sport and Dance Professionals (NAS). This is an opportunity to meet in small groups with outstanding professionals in our field. Several registrations for the 2015 AAHPERD Convention will be raffled off at this session. The Forum concludes with a practical Speed Interviewing activity.
