The College of Education engages in research that advances education, human development, health, and policy. Supported by contracts and grants, we are dedicated to learning and teaching and the education of individuals throughout the lifespan across all segments of society. Our discoveries infuse the state of Georgia and beyond with new ideas and resources.
The College's research efforts enrich the course content for our students, allowing us to provide cutting-edge ideas to the next generation of practitioners, scholars and leaders in the diverse fields of learning, teaching and individual development. Through our commitment to excellence in research, teaching and service, we work to address the needs of communities on the local, national, and international levels.
To learn more about our research and externally funded projects, please view the College Centers and active proposals listed below.
Host to both undergraduate and graduate courses in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries including orthopedic evaluation, general medical evaluation, therapeutics, rehabilitation, and manual therapy.
Equipped for investigating how human movement and body tissues are affected by mechanical physics and engineering principles, research in the lab focuses on performance improvement, injury prevention and assessment, and sport-related concussion.
Creating and disseminating knowledge regarding the importance of habitual physical activity/exercise and appropriate nutrition for optimal body composition as it relates to health status, with a special interest in aging and women's health across the lifespan.
Designed to conduct theory-based research that examines the effects of physical activity on cognitive function, our studies involve electromyography, electroencephalography, and event-related potentials.
This 1,500-square-foot lab is dedicated to the development of new noninvasive methods of measuring skeletal muscle and blood vessel function. These methods are then applied to the study of how activity and inactivity influence the health of people with chronic diseases and injuries.
The Physical Activity Measurement Laboratory specializes in the measurement of physical activity
among diverse populations. We also can also provide help in selecting appropriate self-report
measures of physical activity.
Offering hands-on research and skills-building for future teachers and coaches in sports, physical education and physical activity. Students take on research related to education and methods of teaching sport, while graduate students get hands-on training for future advanced study in sport teaching methods.
