by C. H. Wilson, Jr. on February 17, 2014

Eastern Illinois University LogoThis story out of Eastern Illinois University, CAA approves kinesiology, engineering, health studies changes, discusses curriculum changes based on real-world student needs. Here is an excerpt from the article by Jack Cruikshank:

“Three of the courses added new instructions in the sports of lacrosse, disc golf, ultimate Frisbee and pickleball. Owen said a growing trend within physical education is a desire for students to be able to teach, as traditional sports are becoming less common in the core of physical education classes.

‘As students go to regions such as Chicago, they are being exposed to all these activities, which they currently have not had,’ Owen said.”
