Unknown-1 Chu, T. L., & Zhang, T. (2018). Motivational processes in Sport Education programs among high school students: A systematic review. European Physical Education Review, 24, 372 394.doi:10.1177/1356336X17751231

Within this systematic review, Drs. Chu and Zhang focused on the motivational processes in a Sport Education curriculum and found that through their theoretical frameworks­­—self-determination theory and achievement goal theory—Sport Education has a positive influence on motivation that is consistent across different environments, and that diverse educational settings need to be examined for possible differences in the impacts of motivation on Sport education programs.

1. When did you graduate? 
May 2013
 
2. What do you do now?
I’m an Experimental Psychology PhD student at the University of New Brunswick. I primarily study sex and relationships in the digital age. However, I also dabble in some cross-cultural research, educational practices research, and parenting research. On a day to day basis, I work on research, mostly writing and trying to publish my manuscripts. I had 3 accepted this summer. 
 
3. Why did you major in psychology?
My path to a psychology major was not one of early passion or decisiveness. When I first entered college, I liked too many subjects to have a clear path so I started taking GenEd courses that sounded interesting. When I saw an academic advisor, they asked if I was planning to go into psychology as I had most of the lower-level credits done for a psych major. I had never considered a career in psych. Although I have taken AP Psych in high school, I thought counseling had sounded exhausting & research had sounded boring. Plus, I had done poorly on my final project for AP psych, so I thought I wasn’t good at it. I decided to try out more psych classes while taking other classes in different areas. I asked my friends if they thought I would do well in psychology. They thought I’d be a great therapist. My junior year I had to officially declare a major. I had very much enjoyed my psych classes, and I had done well in them (better than AP Psych). I thought maybe I could be a couples counselor. So, I went for it – I declared a psych major (& a human development major… & an English minor…).
Side note: I changed my mind about doing therapy the fall of my senior year …while I was applying to grad school. I found out that I really like research. It is very interesting and exciting when you are in control of the topic.   
 
4. What do you do for fun?
I like to play board games, draw, paint, cook, go to concerts and plays, read, and watch movies/TV/Netflix. I also like to hang out with my friends, my cat, and my husband.
 
5. What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of?
At UWGB, I was most proud of earning the Chancellor’s medallion. Since graduating UWGB, I have been proud of being able to mentor students in research.
 
6. What’s your favorite movie, book, and TV show, related to psychology?
Movie – Stanger Than Fiction OR Fight Club
Fiction Book – the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie has a really interesting psychology component in its dystopian setting
Non-Fiction Book – Wasted by Marya Hornbacher OR As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised as a Girl by John Colapinto
TV Show – The Good Place
 
7. What’s an important goal or accomplishment you are currently working on?
I’m currently working on my dissertation proposal so I’ll say my dissertation.
