Professional Development Opportunities

Professional Development Points (PD Points)

Kinesiology majors must complete a total of 15 points before student teaching/internship. Points may be earned in different categories with a maximum of 5 points per category. Students are responsible for uploading verification of completion (letters from supervisors, team rosters, membership cards, ect.) to Chalk and Wire. For help uploading PD points, go to the Champion's Club (Kines 102).

Check the bulletin board outside of the Kinesiology Department for current events and opportunities for PD Points!
