Seunghyun Baek, a GA in the EdD in KIN presented at the AERA SIG93 Grad Talks

The American Educational Research Association (AERA) SIG93 ‘Research on Learning and Instruction in Physical Education’ held the AERA SIG93 Grad Talks virtually on February 19th, 2021. It aims to give an opportunity for graduate students to introduce their research into a five minute presentation.

And Seunghyun Baek, a second year PhD student in KIN participated in the AERA SIG93 Grad Talks. Seunghyun has been working for the EdD in KIN program as a graduate assistant since last year. She has participated in research projects about Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in school PE contexts with her advisor, Dr. Ben Dyson. At the AERA SIG93 Grad Talks, she did a presentation about her study titled “Teacher educators’ views of Social and Emotional Learning strategies in Physical Education: An international perspective”. Her study investigated what specific strategies university educators who are connected to PE teacher education programs perceive important to promote students’ Social and Emotional Learning in school PE settings. She said “It was a great experience to present our on-going studies and get feedback from faculties and graduate students outside UNCG. There were a lot of interesting graduate students’ work in progress!”

Good work, Seunghyun! For more information on the EdD in KIN go here.
