Dr. Watson joined the Department of Educational Psychology and Higher Education in the fall of 2010 with over 20 years' experience in sport pedagogy. Her areas of expertise include student learning and development, working with and in diverse organizations, community-based research, and issues concerning preparing culturally responsive leaders in higher education. She has published over 30 manuscripts and chapters in the areas of creating a caring environment in a physical activity setting, and facilitation of personal and social responsibility through physical activity and is the lead author of the book, Using Physical Activity and Sport to Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility (2013). Her work now transitions to the higher education context with a focus on minority serving institutions, graduate student mentoring and college teaching.
