SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ATHLETICS

GENERAL COMMENTS

Study in the field of Physical Education (recreation and sport) began in the form of a two-year diploma programme in 1956 at the Memorial University Campus on Parade Street. The degree programme was approved by Senate in 1961 when the present campus opened. After twenty years as a Department, the unit gained the status of a Professional School in the Fall of 1976. The move to a co-operative education format was made in 1992.

It is clear that future trends in our society towards increased leisure time and personal responsibility for balanced, healthy lifestyles will require professionals in the field of physical education/recreation who are prepared to initiate and operate a wide variety of programmes to meet these needs.

The Bachelor of Physical Education (Co-operative) at Memorial University is a Co-operative Programme, under which regular full-time academic terms are alternated with full-time work terms in positions related to the student's future career.

The BPE (Co-operative) Programme consists of six academic terms and four work terms. The six academic terms are designed with a common curriculum extending over the first two terms.

A BPE Honours (Co-operative) programme requiring additional courses in Physical Education (or in approved related fields) and superior academic achievement is also available.

During work terms students are brought into direct contact with the physical education/recreation profession, exposed to actual practical problems, expected to assume ever-increasing responsibility in employment as their education advances, and introduced to experiences far beyond the scope of those which could be provided in the University. The experiences should provide maturing prospective graduates with an early appreciation of the personal, social and economic aspects of physical education/recreation through direct association with professionals in a work environment.

Much of the experience gained in this type of programme would not be available to students until after graduation, in a conventional programme. This experience makes a significant contribution to their total education.

There are three options to choose from in completing the Bachelor of Physical Education (Co-operative) Degree or the Bachelor of Physical Education Honours (Co-operative) Degree:

1) Teaching - designed to be followed by the Bachelor of Education Degree (B.Ed.):

This option of the degree programme contains courses in curriculum planning, teaching methods and practice relevant to physical education curricula for various age groups. There will be an emphasis on placing the student in a school or teaching position for some of the work terms. The student normally completes the B.Ed. degree programme following the BPE (Co-operative) and will then be prepared for a career within a school setting.

2) General BPE (Co-operative) - designed to provide a basic professional preparation:

The generalist option of the programme consists of core courses common to the other options plus a flexible choice of electives, without the requirement for curriculum and methods courses necessary for the BPE (Co-operative)/B.Ed. combination. This stream is designed to prepare graduates for work outside a school system.

3) Recreation:

The recreation option requires, in addition to the core courses, specified courses in recreation and work term placements in the recreation area. This stream is designed to prepare students who wish to enter the recreation area of the profession.

The BPE (Co-operative) programme normally takes 10 semesters to complete, except for the BPE Honours (Co-operative) programme which normally requires one additional semester of study. Refer to Table 1 for the sequencing of academic and work terms.

Upon successful completion of the undergraduate programme as approved by the Academic Council and Senate, candidates will be recommended for the degree of Bachelor of Physical Education (Co-operative), or Bachelor of Physical Education Honours (Co-operative), as appropriate.

The above items should all be submitted by APRIL 1 for September admission.

Admission

1) Admission to the Bachelor of Physical Education (Co-operative) programme is on the basis of a competition for a limited number of places. The final decision on admission rests with the Admission Committee of the School.

NOTE: First-year students intending to undertake the BPE (Co-operative) programme should note that it is possible to enter Term 1 only in the Fall Semester (September of each year). Attention is also drawn to the admission regulations below.

2) Application forms are available from the office of the Registrar. Applications should be submitted no later than April 1 of the year in which admission is sought.

NOTE: Students intending to complete their academic/ non-academic prerequisites for admission during the Spring Semester, must, nevertheless, apply to the School by April 1.

3) All applications for admission or re-admission to the BPE (Co-operative) programme must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. A complete application includes an application to the School, an application to the University (for those who have not registered for courses at Memorial University in either of the two preceding semesters), and supporting documentation (when necessary).

NOTE: Admission/re-admission to the University does not necessarily constitute admission/re-admission to the BPE (Co-operative) programme.

4) To be considered for admission to the BPE (Co-operative) programme, students are required to complete the following courses with an overall average of at least 55%:

- English 1080 and 1110, or equivalent
- Six credit hours in Psychology
- Six credit hours in Mathematics (excluding M102F, M103F and M104F)
- Six credit hours in Arts other than Arts 1000 or 1001
- Six credit hours in the same laboratory Science other than Science 115A and Science 115B

In addition to the course requirements indicated above, students are required to (a) pass the Physical Performance Tests administered by the School, and (b) submit proof of current certification in First Aid from Red Cross or St. John Ambulance.

The requirements of clause 4 should normally be met no more than two years prior to entry into the programme.

NOTE: Prior to being considered for admission students are also required to register with the School for six non-credit hours, Physical Education 100F and Physical Education 101F.

5) Applicants seeking admission to Term 1 through transfer from another institution must have achieved an equivalent standing in comparable subjects. The applicant is responsible for having official transcripts and other supporting documentation forwarded from the relevant institution(s) to the Office of the Registrar.

6) Advanced standing may be granted to students who have completed courses at Memorial or at a recognized post-secondary institution. In addition to regulation 3 above, applicants for admission with advanced standing are responsible for having certified documentation attesting to their academic experience forwarded to the Office of the Registrar. This should include an official transcript (which must be forwarded directly from the appropriate institution), calendar description of courses and detailed course outlines.

Applications for advanced standing should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar at least three months prior to the commencement of the term to which admission is sought. Any application received after the relevant deadline will be considered as time and resources permit.

Such application when complete will be considered by the Admission Committee of the School. No applicant granted advanced standing will be admitted beyond Academic Term 3. Because of the importance of the work experience in the co-operative programme, completion of three work terms is considered an absolute minimum requirement.

Students admitted into the programme at a level beyond Academic Term 1, without having successfully completed all courses required up to that level, must successfully complete each such course prior to the end of Academic Term 6. Successful completion shall mean a grade of 50% or higher in all non-Physical Education courses, and 60% or higher in all Physical Education courses.

7) Transcripts and other documentation must be submitted in English and all translations of documentation must be certified.

Students may be required to demonstrate, by test, their proficiency in English. (see University General Regulations).

8) In special cases, the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School, on the recommendation of the Admission Committee, may waive the admission requirements, or deny admission to any student.

Programme of Study

1) Every candidate shall complete the six academic terms (seven for honours candidates) in the co-operative programme, in addition to the thirty credit hours required for admission, and shall normally be required to complete four work terms. Each academic term shall comprise of a minimum of fifteen credit hours. Hence, a total of one hundred and twenty credit hours are required for the Bachelor of Physical Education (Co-operative) programme and one hundred and thirty-five credit hours for the Bachelor of Physical Education Honours (Co-operative) programme.

2) Courses shall be taken in academic terms in the sequence, order and course load as set out in Table 1 - Academic Course Programmes, School of Physical Education and Athletics. Academic terms and work terms shall be taken in the sequence as set out in Table 2 - Plan of Operation, The Co-operative Bachelor of Physical Education (Co-operative) Programme. Exceptions to this prescribed programme, including specified course load, must have the approval of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School.

3) The need for a specific course(s) or work term requirement may be waived by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School for students who apply for exemption from the course(s) or work term requirement in question.

Students requesting exemption from any work term requirement must submit medical and/or other evidence to support such exemption, to the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School. Notwithstanding the preceding, students must successfully complete a minimum of three work terms.

4) The non-Physical Education elective courses indicated in Table 1 - Academic Course Programmes, School of Physical Education and Athletics must be courses from the Faculties of Arts, Science or other faculties approved by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School.

5) Students following the Teaching option and who plan to complete the Bachelor of Education Degree programme at Memorial, must choose a concentration of at least twenty-four credit hours from one of the subject areas listed in the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree regulations.

6) Students following the General or Recreation options must chose non-Physical Education courses so that within the total programme they will have a concentration of (a) at least twenty-four credit hours in a non-Physical Education subject, or (b) at least twelve credit hours in each of two non-Physical education subjects. These courses shall be chosen in consultation with the School of Physical Education and Athletics.

7) IN ADDITION TO MEETING THE ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION, STUDENTS MUST SUBMIT PROOF OF A FIRST AID CERTIFICATION VALID AT THE TIME OF GRADUATION AND MUST HAVE PASSED THE FITNESS TEST DURING THE FINAL ACADEMIC SEMESTER OF THEIR PROGRAMME.

Evaluation and Promotion

Success in the programme depends on meeting the requirements of both academic terms and work terms. A student of physical education should be able to obtain a work term position through the job competition for each work term. Employers are only likely to offer positions to students who can demonstrate the academic and personal qualities which fit them for the work concerned. Students must be able to communicate effectively when applying for positions and as required during the work term. Some assistance in the strengthening of communication skills is available for all students.

1) The Academic Council of the School constitutes the examining body for all physical education evaluations. The standing of every student will be assessed at the end of each academic term and at the end of each work term by the Undergraduate Studies Committee which will then make its recommendations to Academic Council. The decisions of the Academic Council will be issued to individual students by mail and will be forwarded to the Registrar.

2) Students have the right to appeal any decision made by the School in regard to their promotion. Any such appeal must be made in writing to the Chair of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School, within one month of the issue of results by the Academic Council.

3) To be promoted a student must, in addition to obtaining the requisite marks and average, complete and deliver all laboratory, project work, and work reports as required. Students must also satisfy the fitness test requirements.

4) The Academic Council of the School may promote a student notwithstanding promotion requirements given below. A decision of this nature will be made only for reasons acceptable to Academic Council and in the case of a student thought likely to succeed in future terms.

5) Students to whom promotion is denied are no longer in the BPE (Co-operative) programme. Subject to regulations 12, 13 and 20, such students may be permitted to repeat unsuccessful terms. Those wishing to do so must apply for re-admission in accordance with the School and University re-admission regulations.

6) A student's status at the end of each academic term will be in one of the following three categories:

a) Clear promotion - requires an overall average of at least 60% with a mark of at least 60% in all Physical Education courses, and at least 50% in all non-Physical Education courses. Students will also have completed the fitness test requirement during each academic term.

b) Probationary promotion - requires an overall average of at least 60%, with at least 50% in all courses, and at most one Physical Education course mark below 60%. Students will also be on probation if they fail to complete the fitness test requirement in an academic term.

c) Probationary (A) promotion-failure to successfully complete the required components of the activities course in a given semester, upon the recommendation of the course instructor/coordinator and/or the Undergraduate Studies Committee.

d) Promotion Denied - if neither of the above sets of criteria is satisfied.

7) A student who has a clear promotion can proceed to the next term in the programme.

8) A student with a probationary promotion at the end of Academic Term 1 will be permitted to enter Academic Term 2 with no conditions other than those of clause 11 which must be met by the end of Academic Term 2.

9) A student with a probationary promotion from Academic Terms 2 to 5 will continue to the subsequent work term under the condition that entry into the next academic term is not allowed until the student's status is transferred to a clear promotion under conditions outlined in clause 11.

10) A student with a probationary promotion or promotion denied at the end of Academic Term 6 (Academic Term 7 for honours candidates) will not be recommended for graduation until the student's status is changed to that of a clear promotion.

11) A student with a probationary (A) promotion in any semester will be permitted to enter subsequent semesters but will not receive a grade for that activities course until the outstanding items have been successfully completed. Academic Council will grant this status, taking into account the specific factors involved in each case. This status is not automatic, as failure to successfully complete all requirements of an activities course would normally result in a failing grade.

12) Transfer from a probationary promotion to a clear promotion will entail satisfying the School that the student is competent in the subject of the Physical Education course in which the student has failed to achieve 60%. This will normally entail re-examination, upon which the student will be declared to have passed or failed a test of competency in the subject concerned, without the assignment of a numerical grade on the test. Re-examination may be written, oral, practical or a combination of all formats.

A re-examination will be at a time determined by the School. Failure to submit to the re-examination or failure in the re-examination will result in denial of promotion.

Remedial studies, including courses, may be recommended to be completed before re-examination.

Students on probation because of a failure to complete the fitness test requirement will not be permitted to proceed to the next academic term unless the requirement is met prior to the beginning of that term.

In the case of probationary (A) status, the student shall successfully complete the missing course components before graduation.

13) Students denied promotion may seek to be re-admitted to the programme, after two semesters. Re-admission will normally be into the term which the student failed. Students will be required to repeat all professional courses in which they obtained less than a grade of 65% in that term. A non-Physical Education elective course may be replaced by a course acceptable in the student's programme.

Where students have successfully completed (60%) all professional courses but failed a non-Physical Education elective course, they may be readmitted into the next work term of their programme.

14) A student shall be permitted only one readmission to the BPE (Co-operative) programme.

15) Students may be required to withdraw from their programme at any time, if, in the opinion of the School, they are unlikely to profit from continued attendance.

16) Successful completion of the work term requirements is a prerequisite to graduation. The dates for starting and finishing each work term are shown in the University Diary.

17) A competition for work term employment is organized by the School of Physical Education and Athletics.

Students may request interviews for up to 12 jobs offered in the competition.

Students registered in the BPE (Co-operative) programme give permission for the School of Physical Education and Athletics to supply their Co-operative BPE student resumé to potential employers.

18) Students may obtain their work term jobs outside the competition. Such jobs must be confirmed by letter from the employer and be approved by the School of Physical Education and Athletics on or before the official first day of the work term as outlined in the University Diary.

19) A Work Report must be submitted each work term on some phase of the student's current employment. This report must be approved by the employer and be submitted to the School of Physical Education and Athletics on or before the deadline date shown in the University Diary. Evidence of the student's ability to gather material relating to the job, analyze it effectively and present it in a clear, logical and concise form, will be required in the report. Late reports may not be evaluated, unless prior permission for a late report has been given by the School of Physical Education and Athletics.

20) The overall evaluation of the work term is the responsibility of the School of Physical Education and Athletics.

Two components are considered in work term evaluation: on-the-job performance and the Work Report. Each component is evaluated separately.

Evaluation of the work term will result in the assignment of one of the following promotion recommendations:

a) PASS WITH DISTINCTION: Indicates excellent performance in both the work report and work performance. The student is commended for his/her outstanding performance in each of the required components; pass with distinction has been awarded to each of the work report and work performance.

b) PASS: Indicates that performance meets expectations in both the work report and work performance. The student fully meets the requirements of a passing work report and completely satisfactory work term performance.

c) FAIL: Indicates failing performance in the work report and/or work performance.

For promotion from the work term, a student must obtain PASS WITH DISTINCTION or PASS.

On-the-job performance is assessed by the Programme Manager or a delegate using information gathered during the work term and input from the employer towards the end of the work term. Formal written documentation from the employer is sought.

The Work Report is evaluated by the Programme Manager or delegate. If an employer designates a report to be of a confidential nature, both employer and Programme Manager must agree as to the method to protect the confidentiality of such a report before the report may be accepted for evaluation.

21) If a student fails to achieve promotion from a work term, the student will be required to withdraw from the programme and may be considered for re-admission after the lapse of two semesters, at which time the student will be required to complete a further work term with satisfactory performance before being admitted to any further academic term in the School.

A given work term may be repeated only once, and not more than two work terms may be repeated in the entire programme.

Notwithstanding the above, a student who does not achieve promotion and who in the opinion of the School can benefit from a remedial programme, may be permitted an extension of time not to exceed the end of the Regular Registration Period of the subsequent semester to complete the requirements of the work term.

22) Students are not permitted to drop work terms without prior approval of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies upon the recommendation of the Programme Manager. Students who drop a work term without permission, or who fail to honour an agreement to work with an employer, or who conduct themselves in such a manner as to cause their discharge from the job, will normally be awarded a failing grade for that work term. Permission to drop a work term does not constitute a waiver of degree requirements, and students who have obtained such permission must complete an approved work term in lieu of the one dropped.

NOTE: Students should also refer to the General Regulations of the University.

23) Students who receive clear promotion from an academic term but who then experience an interruption in the continuation of their programme, must re-pass the fitness continuation test before proceeding to the next academic term in the programme.

A Work Report, on a topic approved by the Programme Manager or delegate, must be submitted for each work term. The report must be approved by the employer and submitted to the School on or before the deadline scheduled by the School. Evidence of the student's ability to gather material relevant to the report, analyze it effectively and present it in a clear, logical and concise form, will be required in the report.

Topics may include work report writing, work term evaluation, career planning, employment seeking skills, resumé preparation, interview skills, ethics and professional concepts, behaviourial requirements in the work place - among others.

NOTE: Seminars on professional development, conducted by the School of Physical Education and Athletics, are presented during Academic Terms 1 and 2 to prepare the student for participation in subsequent Work Terms.


PHYSICAL EDUCATION CO-OPERATIVE PROGRAMME

General management of the work terms in the Co-operative Programme is the responsibility of the School of Physical Education and Athletics. The School, through its Programme Manager and delegates, is responsible for assisting potential employers to become involved in the programme, for the continual development of employment opportunities, for arranging student-employer interviews, for counselling of students, for visiting them on their work assignments and for the grading of the work term.

Students and employers choose each other through the School's placement process. Job notices are posted and students may apply for up to twelve interviews. Employers' representatives come on campus and interview students, after which both the students and employers express their preferences for one another.

Students are then placed by the School to fit expressed preference. While the School does not guarantee paid placement, every effort is made to ensure that appropriate employment is made available. In the case of students who are required to withdraw from the programme, the School has no responsibility for placement until they have been re-admitted to the programme.

Salaries paid cooperative students are determined within the employer's own wage structure, and can be expected to increase as the student progresses through the programme and assumes more responsibility. However, students should not expect income from work terms to make them completely self-supporting.

Students in the co-operative programme give permission to prospective employers, in the course of the interview process, to have access to their records, which contain their academic marks and their work term evaluations. After placement, students may not withdraw from a specific job situation unless prior permission is obtained from the Programme Manager of the School.
