The AIESEP Early Career Network committee announces the winners of the 2017 AIESEP Young Scholars Award. The AIESEP Young Scholar Award is a competition for young members of AIESEP who plan or have embarked on careers as researchers in physical education and sport pedagogy. The award is designed to support the participation and involvement of early career scholars in AIESEP meetings. Nine, high quality applications were received from eight different countries (Germany, France, Portugal, USA, UK, New Zealand, Sweden, Canada). Many of these candidates provided evidence of high academic performance, exciting scholarship ideas and a commitment to the mission of AIESEP. After careful consideration by the committee, the following two young scholar winners will be recognized at the 2017 AIESEP conference in Guadeloupe.
- Magnus Ferry (PhD, Umea University, Sweden) with a presentation: “Pre-service physical education teachers’ conceptions on the subject and profession – changes over time”
- Aiko Mohwald (doctoral student, Technical University Dortmund, Germany) with a presentation “Provoking Uncertainty in Physical Education – a qualitative analysis of students’ handling”
These recipients will deliver an oral or poster presentation at the AIESEP Conference, and will receive the award during the closing ceremony.
