Include phone number and email address. This person is expected to attend Divisional and/or Senate Curriculum meetings to discuss the proposal. TITLE SUMMARY: PHYSICAL EDUCATION BACHELOR OF SCIENCE PROPOSED ACTION: Underline proposed changes . Program addition Change in requirements* Program redesign *** Program deletion Other: *Please note that changes pertaining to admission requirements for a major require approval of the Senate Academic Standards Committee. ***The program content and admission criteria have not changed . This program redesign was necessary because of the proposed change in status for Athletic Training from an option in physical education to a major in Athletic Training. EXISTING (OLD) DATA: Physical Education Bachelor of Science This interdisciplinary program provides students with multidimensional professional preparation in Physical Education. The Physical Education major is completed by selecting one of the two options: Athletic Training or Teacher Certification. An application process is required for each of the options in the major. Specific requirements and standards are listed for each of the two options. A decision to major in Physical Education should be made no later than the fall semester of the freshman year. For transfers and students who begin at a later time, two or more additional semesters can be expected. INTEGRATIVE STUDIES REQUIREMENTS 44 credits All Physical Education Teacher Certification majors must meet the New Hampshire General Knowledge Standards for Teachers (ED 609). In order to accomplish this goal, Physical Education Teacher Certification majors are advised to take courses focusing on literature, history, and geography as part of their Integrative Studies Program. ALLIED REQUIREMENTS FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION 44 credits BIO 230 (Human Anatomy and Physiology I) and BIO 232 (Human Anatomy and Physiology II) are prerequisites for courses in the major for all students majoring in Physical Education (both the Athletic Training option and the Teacher Certification option). This sequence is normally started in the spring semester of the freshman year. The prerequisite for BIO 230 is INCHEM 100, INCHEM 103, or INCHEM 111, depending on requirements of a student’s option. Therefore, a chemistry course should be taken during the first semester of the freshman year. COMPETENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION All students majoring in Physical Education (both the Athletic Training option and the Teacher Certification option) must demonstrate math competency at the level of Intermediate Algebra and Trigonometry or take MATH 120 during the freshman year. 1. Athletic Training Option (including option + allied + competency requirements) 73+12+4=89 (note: would be 73+12=85, if student does not need to take MATH 120) The Athletic Training option is a Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE)-accredited undergraduate athletic training education program. Students who graduate with a Physical Education Athletic Training option are eligible to take the Board of Certification (BOC) Athletic Trainer’s Certification Examination. The program prepares students for athletic training positions in educational and clinical settings and for graduate programs in Athletic Training, Exercise Physiology, and Biomechanics. The academic program is highly structured and requires that students begin major course work during their first semester of attendance at Keene State College. Transfers and other students who begin the option at the sophomore or junior year should plan to stay an additional one to three semesters beyond the traditional four-year schedule to complete the program. Freshman who intend to apply to this option must enroll in PE 141 for the fall semester and PE 140 for the spring semester. Transfers with more than 30 credits who have completed Human Anatomy and Physiology I or the equivalent and who intend to apply to this option must enroll in PE 140 and PE 141 for the fall semester. The application process for admission to the Athletic Training option begins the first week of fall semester for transfers and the first week of spring semester for freshmen. Review of applicants and official notification of the results of this review occurs during the spring semester for transfers and during the summer for freshman. When a student is not accepted, a consultation will be scheduled with one or more members of the Admissions Committee. During the conference, the student will be notified of any areas of deficiency that need to be addressed. The student will be eligible to reapply for admission during the next year’s admission period. Admission Criteria 1. Overall GPA of 2.5; major GPA of 2.5. 2. A performance evaluation by a clinical instructor in the Athletic Training option based on one semester with a minimum of 50 hours of clinical education hours in the KSC Athletic Training Room. 3. Successful completion of required competencies, including specified rehabilitation protocols, taping/wrapping techniques, and athletic training room procedures. 4. Recommendation for admission by two Physical Education faculty, one of whom must be a clinical instructor in the Athletic Training option. Retention Standards Admission to PE 493 Externship: Athletic Training. Students are required to submit letters of intent to register for PE 493 Externship: Athletic Training following completion of courses leading up to and including fall semester junior-level courses in the Physical Education Athletic Training option. The following criteria will be used: o Completion of a minimum of 75 credits. o Completion of the Athletic Training option courses listed below with a grade C or higher.  PE 140 Introduction to Athletic Training (2 credits)  PE 141 Personal Health (2 credits)  PE 200 Applied Kinesiology  PE 201 Physiology of Exercise  PE 240 Emergency Response  PE 241 Techniques of Athletic Taping (1 credit)  PE 340 Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries  PE 341 Evaluation of the Lower Extremity and Axial Region  PE 342 Therapeutic Modalities  PE 343 Clinical Exercise Therapy  PE 344 Sports Nutrition  PE 383 Clinical Athletic Training I (2 credits)  PE 384 Clinical Athletic Training II (2 credits)  PE 440 Evaluation of the Upper Extremity and Spine  PE 483 Clinical Athletic Training III o Completion of major requirements with a GPA of 2.5. o Cumulative GPA of 2.5. Transcripts will be reviewed prior to placing students. Deadlines for application are March 1 for a fall sport rotation and April 1 for a winter or spring sport rotation. Technical Standards for Admission The Athletic Training Educational Program at Keene State College is a rigorous and intense program that places specific requirements and demands on the students enrolled in the program. An objective of this program is to prepare graduates to enter a variety of employment settings and to render care to a wide spectrum of individuals engaged in physical activity. The technical standards set forth by the Athletic Training Educational Program establish the essential qualities considered necessary for students admitted to this program to achieve the knowledge, skills, and competencies of an entry-level athletic trainer, as well as meet the expectations of the program’s accrediting agency [Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP)]. The following abilities and expectations must be met by all students admitted to the Athletic Training Educational Program. In the event a student is unable to fulfill these technical standards, with or without reasonable accommodation, the student will not be admitted into the program. Compliance with the program’s technical standards does not guarantee a student’s eligibility for the Board of Certification (BOC) Athletic Trainer’s Certification Exam. Candidates for selection to the Athletic Training Educational Program must demonstrate: 9. The mental capacity to assimilate, analyze, synthesize, integrate concepts, and problem solve to formulate assessment and therapeutic judgments and to be able to distinguish deviations from the norm. 10.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES AND /OR LEARNING OUTCOMES: To insure that Keene State College Physical Education/Teacher Certification graduates will be proficient in planning, implementing, and evaluating physical education programs, the following program outcomes have been established. These outcomes address the standards for beginning physical education teachers set by NCATE/NASPE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education/National Association of Sport and Physical Education) and NHCTE (New Hampshire Council for Teacher Education). Content Knowledge: Physical education teachers understand physical education content and disciplinary concepts related to the development of a physically educated person. Growth and Development: Physical education teachers understand how individuals learn and develop and can provide opportunities that support their physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development. Diverse Students: Physical education teachers understand how individuals differ in their approaches to learning and create appropriate instruction adapted to these differences. Management and Motivation: Physical education teachers use an understanding of individual and group motivation and behavior to create a safe learning environment that encourages positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation. Communication: Physical education teachers use knowledge of effective verbal, nonverbal, and media communication techniques to enhance learning and engagement in physical activity settings. Planning and Instruction: Physical education teachers plan and implement a variety of developmentally appropriate instructional strategies to develop physically educated individuals, based on state and national (NASPE (K-12) standards. Student Assessment: Physical education teachers understand and use assessment to foster physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of students in physical activity. Reflection: Physical education teachers are reflective practitioners who evaluate the effects of their actions on others (e.g., students, parents/guardians, fellow professionals) and seek opportunities to grow professionally. Technology: Physical education teachers use information technology to enhance learning and to enhance personal professional productivity. Collaboration: Physical education teachers foster relationships with colleagues, parents/guardians, and community agencies to support students’ growth and well-being. RATIONALE: The program content and admission criteria have not changed. This program redesign was necessary because of the proposed change in status for Athletic Training from an option in physical education to a major in Athletic Training. This would leave Teacher Certification as the only option under the BS Physical Education degree. This proposal now makes the BS Physical Education degree the one students who wish to pursue teacher certification would complete. RESOURCES: Indicate whether additional staffing, facilities, and/or equipment will be required. Also, consider the long-term impact of adding a course or altering a program. When a proposal has staffing, space or monetary implications, the VPAA must be consulted and his or her comments should be included in this section. The program requirements are unchanged from the current one. No additional resources are needed relative to this proposal. What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? The program requirements are unchanged from the current one. No additional library resources are needed relative to this proposal. ADVISORY OPINIONS: List the names of affected departments and include department responses. Advisory opinions are required whenever a proposal affects the curricula of other programs. A proposal must list all affected departments. An Advisory Opinion must be solicited at least two weeks prior to delivery of the proposal to the DCC. Affected departments have two weeks to respond to the request for an Advisory Opinion. Responses should be attached to the proposal. In the event that affected departments do not respond, evidence of the request for an Advisory Opinion from non-respondents must be provided. (The electronic curriculum review process tracks votes, advisory opinions and comments as required at each stage of the review.) The program requirements are unchanged from the current one. No advisory opinions are needed.
