Karp, Grace Goc, Byra, Mark, Gould, Dan, Karper, William, Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport


Using different types of interview techniques is prevalent in qualitative methodology and becoming more popular in physical education. For many years, pedagogists have used various interview techniques to provide insight into teacher and student cognition and activity. More recently, sport psychologists have used interviewing to understand and enhance sport performance, and exercise scientists are using interview techniques to validate clients' responses to exercise. This symposium presents an overview of the use and application of the interview method in the subdisciplines of pedagogy, sport psychology and exercise science. The symposium content is directed to researchers, graduate students and physical education teachers.
