Baker and Shin Present at NASSM Conference

Dr. Amy Baker and Dr. Stephen Shin of Sport Administration recently attended and presented at the annual North American Society for Sport Management (NASSM) conference in Seattle, Wash. Baker and Shin presented information, handouts and examples of “Using Problem-Based Learning in Sport Management Classes” at the teaching and learning fair portion of the conference. Problem-based learning is a powerful classroom process, using real-world problems to motivate students to identify and apply research concepts and information, work collaboratively and communicate effectively. This strategy promotes life-long habits of learning, and provides advantages to sport management students. Components of understanding this teaching methodology were presented.
