|Book reception to honor Sandra Short|
Please join the College of Education and Human Development celebrate Sandra Short’s new book, "Self-Efficacy in Sport" – research and strategies for working with athletes, teams, and coaches, with a book reception from 3 to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in Room 104, Education Building.
"Self-Efficacy in Sport" is packed with theory-based and research-tested guidelines and recommendations for designing interventions to build, maintain, and regain confidence in sport.
A key feature of the book is its annotated bibliography section that contains summaries of over 200 research studies on self-confidence in sport over the past 30 years. This section allows readers to quickly and critically evaluate all of the research cited in the book and prevents the book from becoming simply a long literature review.
Dr. Short is a professor in the Department of Physical Education, Exercise Science and Wellness and holds an adjunct appointment in the Psychology Department. She is the recipient of several scholarships and awards, including the Franklin Henry Young Scientist Award and a New Faculty Scholar Award. Short is an associate editor for The Sport Psychologist, the founding co-editor for the Journal of Imagery Research in Sport and Physical Activity, and a guest reviewer for 15 other journals.
Most recently, Short was honored with the inaugural award for Outstanding Achievement in Scholarship by an Individual Faculty Member from the College of Education and Human Development last April.
We hope you will join us in celebrating Dr. Short’s success.
