Students in the EdD in Kinesiology, UNCG’s first completely online doctoral program, just finished their first semester. This group of 18 students “attends” classes online from 7 different states, including North Carolina, California, Texas, Virginia, Georgia, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. Students took two courses during the fall of 2014 semester, a seminar in kinesiology (KIN 750) which allowed students to explore the field of kinesiology, and a program design course (KIN 662) which focused on leadership and professional development in higher education. End of course feedback was very positive with students noting they had a better understanding of the field and they had already applied what they learned in class into their own professional practice.
