Message from SIG Chair: Jeanne Barcelona

Hello and welcome to SIG 93- Research on Learning and Instruction in Physical Education.  My name is Jeanne Barcelona and I am very much looking forward to serving as your Chair this year. I have had the pleasure of being involved as a member in SIG 93 since 2014 and have been given the opportunity to present both oral and roundtable presentations at numerous annual meetings. In 2015 I received the SIG 93 Graduate Student Research Paper of the Year Award and can say it was truly one of the most motivating and fulfilling points of my doctoral studies. I would also be remiss if I did not say how much I look forward to our Invisible College sessions each year.  As your Chair this year, my goal is to support and lift up the wonderful work of all of our SIG 93 scholars. Please be on the lookout for information on our RLIPE seminar series this year- we have some wonderful scholars and some amazing graduate students that will be sharing their research with us. Planning is also underway for our annual meeting and I look forward to seeing each and every one of you in Chicago (my hometown 😊).
