Scholar-Athletes and Embodied Learning: Writing Themselves In

Dr. J. Michael Rifenburg's recent book The Embodied Playbook offers groundbreaking insight  into the teaching of scholar-athletes. He offers a new approach to understanding student literacy in a surprising place: the university athletics department. Through analysis of a yearlong case study of the men’s basketball team at the University of North Georgia, Rifenburg shows that a deeper and more refined understanding of how humans learn through physical action can help writing instructors reach a greater range of students.

SpeakerJ. Michael Rifenburg, Associate Professor of Writing at University of North Georgia
