Dailey receives TAF Undergraduate Teaching Award for outstanding teaching


Deborah Dailey, Instructor in the School of Kinesiology, received the Tiger Athletic Foundation Undergraduate Teaching Award for outstanding teaching, selected by the College of Human Sciences & Education. She was honored at a reception at the Lod Cook Alumni Center on May 4, 2016.

Dailey’s philosophy of teaching is based on a belief that learning needs to be student centered and that students need to be equal partners in the learning process. She says one of the main reasons she decided to pursue a career in academia was to work with future generations and educators in an instructional capacity.

Dailey has taught courses such as KIN 2504, an introduction to basic exercise science concepts through aerobic and anaerobic conditioning principles; KIN 3605, a course designed to provide students with a broad overview of the physical, social, and psychological aspects of aging; and KIN 4601, a course designed to study the community and public health aspects.

Dailey implements technology in all of her courses, such as digital stories, podcasts, video lectures, forums, and discussion boards.

Dailey’s current interests are in undergraduate instruction, particular in conditioning and training as well as health prevention and promotion across the lifespan. She is a textbook and chapter reviewer for Pearson Benjamin Cummings Publishing Company in the health and exercise science area.
