ACSM's 2019 International Health & Fitness Summit Video CEC: Using the Theory of Multiple Intelligences to Better Reach our Participants

By Sally Sherman, M.S., M.Ed., Ph.D., Visiting Assistant Professor, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA

Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1983. Today this theory is taught world-wide as a way to better reach students in education. Come and learn how to use this theory to better reach our health and fitness participants, to increase self-efficacy and to keep them more engaged. Whether students are more visually intelligent, more spatial or body-kinesthetic, simple modifications can be added to our teaching in order to assist learning for students of all ages.

Learning Objectives

· 1. educate health leaders on the research of the multiple intelligences theory and help them to apply it to their work.

· 2. simplify the theory into ways that it can be used to enhance the experiences of our participants.

· 3. show the theory in action with fitness examples so it can be applied into the work of the attendees.
