Our graduate students participated in the 2021 Showcase of Scholarship

The graduate school held a virtual 2021 Showcase of Scholarship in April. This online event aimed to give graduate students an opportunity to share their academic achievements with the greater Greensboro community. The students created brief videos about their research for this broader audience.

One of our EdD in KIN students, Jeff Akers participated in this event. He introduced his study titled “Increasing Physical Activity and Self-efficacy in PE by Flipping the Classroom”. Jeff shared “The graduate showcase was a nice chance to show the community the extent of our hard work. It’s exciting because there is such a diverse research effort taking place here at UNCG, and the creativity is off the charts. I’m very thankful to be a part of the UNCG family and look forward to seeing the paths these participants take as they move forward making positive impacts in so many disciplines.”

Derek Hevel, who is a Summer GA for the EdD in KIN program, received an award in the Health Sciences category for his study titled “Feelings of Pleasantness for the Promotion of Physical Activity in College Students” which was conducted in collaboration with Dr. Jaclyn Maher. Mac Pierson and Jason Brantley who are PhD students in Kinesiology also participated in the Showcase and were awarded.
