Seung Ho Chang 

 

Professor Bio

Dr. Seung Ho Chang received a B.S. degree in Physical Education and master’s degree in Physical Education (emphasis in Motor Development and Control) from Seoul National University, South Korea. He earned his Ph.D. in Kinesiology with a specialization in Motor Development and Physical Education Teacher Education from The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. After completing his graduate work, Dr. Chang worked as an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, TX.

 

Education

Ph.D. The Ohio State University - Kinesiology (Emphasis: Motor Development & Physical Education Teacher Education).       

M.A. Seoul National University - Physical Education (Emphasis: Motor Development & Control).

B.S. Seoul National University - Physical Education.

 

Expertise, Research & Teaching Interests

Dr. Chang’s research agenda focuses on two complementary areas: Motor Development and Physical Education Teacher Education: His primary research area is the motor competence and physical activity of disadvantaged preschoolers with developmental delays. The intent of this research is to understand the complex interactions of multiple subsystems from the task, environment, and child in order to develop and implement high quality motor skill interventions in schools, communities, and families. His second line of research is to identify the types of teachers’ content knowledge (CK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and how CK and PCK play a significant role in promoting students’ fundamental motor skills in physical education class.

 

Courses Taught

Lifespan Motor Development, Content in Elementary Physical Education, Teaching Physical Education in Elementary School, Elementary Methods, Secondary Methods, Assessment in Kinesiology, Team and Individual Sports Skill Analysis.

Undergraduate/Graduate Student Research Supervision

Dr. Chang has supervised undergraduate students’ research activities through SKIP (Successful Kinesthetic Instruction for Preschoolers) motor skill intervention program. In particular, Dr. Chang helped students understand how constraints (task/performance/environment) influence motor performance, develop competency in assessing the motor performance of young children, improve the ability to collect, analyze, and evaluate data, and present the findings of their research via a poster presentation.
