The Physical and Health Education Teacher Education (P/HETE) program hosted a workshop from The First Tee of Western New York (WNY) on Tuesday, November 27. The presenters, Janet Battaglia, Kayla Burt and Steve Lancon, provided information to teacher candidates about the game of golf and its inherent values to young people through after- and in-school programs and on-course life skills classes. Students from Clancy Seymour’s “Teaching Methods of Physical Education” class attended the training. The session concluded with hands-on curriculum ideas and lesson tasks for teacher candidates to apply and utilize in the future. The event was well received and benefited P/HETE majors both in readiness for teaching and employment opportunities.

Kyla Kegler’s “Feel Me in the Library” is now on display in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library. In an experiential installation that reflects on the conditions of feeling and through interactive tools and how-to guides, the work advocates finding feeling as a radical practice. In a moment in which we are ever-more distracted from intuitive feeling by traumatizing news headlines, increasing virtual mediation and the mindfulness industry’s commodification of self, “Feel Me in the Library” offers a means of resisting apathy and enhancing empathy. The installation plays on its unique context, serving as a haven where students and other members of the campus community may retreat from their cerebral activities for some moments of somatic exploration.
Join the Fine Arts Department for a reception and talk today, November 30 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library with the artist Kyla Kegler.
