Two EdD in KIN students present at the 2021 NAKHE Virtual Conference

Recently EdD in KIN students, Andrew Cage and Brandon Warner presented at the 2021 NAKHE Conference. The conference was held virtually on January 6-9, 2021. This year’s conference theme was “Supporting Faculty through Effective Leadership: The Work Beyond the Work”. It was focused on legal and ethical aspects of the work environment, open communication between faculty and administrators, and understanding inclusive excellence.

Andrew Cage presented studies titled “Rethinking How We Address Knowledge Gaps Within Athletic Training” and “Inclusion of Cupping Therapy in Athletic Training Curriculums”. Andrew added his thoughts about his presentation experience – “My hope is these presentations will help bring awareness of the current state of athletic training education to the broader Kinesiology Discipline and encourage fellow athletic training scholars to present at education conferences on a more consistent basis”.

Brandon Warner presented studies titled “Rethinking How We Address Knowledge Gaps Within Athletic Training” and “Using Objective Data to Inform National Certification Examination Preparedness and Faculty Mentoring”. Brandon also shared further ideas about his presentations – “My primary lecture on national certification rates can be very impactful. (…) AT is in its infancy for this and the work created for this lecture helps disseminate one program’s method for assessing student preparedness and how to mentor the students towards success”.

Andrew and Brandon co-presented “Rethinking How We Address Knowledge Gaps Within Athletic Training” and collaborated with each other for two other presentations. Great work, Andrew and Brandon! For more information on the EdD in KIN go here.
