Researchers have claimed that coaches and athletes are increasingly expected to use research evidence and innovation to gain competitive advantages (e.g.,  Arnold & Schilling, 2017 ), yet, scholars have also acknowledged that bridging gaps between research and practice in sport is challenging

study the teaching practices of John Wooden, regarded by some observers as the greatest coach of the 20th century. It was an unusual decision by a junior professor; coaching was not a priority subject for psychological researchers. Unconventional studies can be risky in a publish or perish environment

Environmental and policy approaches are promising strategies to raise population-wide rates of physical activity; yet, little attention has been paid to the development and prioritization of a research agenda on these topics that will have relevance for both researchers and practitioners.


Using input from hundreds of researchers and practitioners, a research agenda was developed for promoting physical activity through environmental and policy interventions. Concept mapping was used to develop the agenda.


Among those who brainstormed ideas, 42% were researchers and 33% were practitioners. The data formed a concept map with 9 distinct clusters. Based on ratings by both researchers and practitioners, the policy research cluster on city planning and design emerged as the most important, with economic evaluation second.


Our research agenda sets the stage for new inquiries to better understand the environmental and policy influences on physical activity.

Grants play a major role in higher education, including kinesiology. External funding is critical for many types of research and has come to be expected in higher education. This expectation has not always been the case, as 30–40 years ago very few faculty members were expected to obtain grants and

Double-blinded peer review, in which neither the author nor the reviewers are aware of one another’s identities, has become foundational to the academic publishing process across areas of scientific research ( DeMaria, 2011 ; Kirk, Hastie, MacPhail, O’Donovan, & Quennerstedt, 2014 ). Nevertheless

necessary supports and accommodations to access a meaningful education experience. However, there is a dearth of research dedicated to using online settings to deliver special education services ( Rice & Dykman, 2018 ). The lack of evidence to support the shift to online learning is even more problematic

Experiential learning via internships, practicums, and research provides undergraduate students with rich opportunities to enhance their knowledge of core concepts in kinesiology. Moreover, these types of experiences increase job-related skills (e.g., leadership development, critical thinking
