ROBATAS RESEARCH PROJECT - TEACHING WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL AND PROMOTING TALENT IN SCHOOL THROUGH PLAY

Research in sports science: "Inclusion is not only social learning".

Heterogeneous learning groups have long been part of everyday life in classrooms. But there is also a lack of teaching concepts for sports. The training scientist Prof. Dr. Stephan Schiemann and the two sports didacticians Prof. Dr. Jessica Süßenbach and Dr. Steffen Greve are investigating how wheelchair basketball can also be played at regular schools.

The project is funded with around 140,000 euros from the Federal Institute for Sports Science. 

Further information is available here.

The Institute for Exercise, Sport and Health is dedicated to the training of students in the teaching of sport (both for primary, secondary and secondary schools as well as for vocational schools) and various aspects of sports science. In research and teaching, particular attention is paid to questions of sports pedagogy, sports sociology and sports didactics on the one hand, and to aspects of kinesiology, training science and health promotion on the other. 

In addition to school sports and physical education, important topics include popular sports, competitive sports and health education. Sports science coordinates and integrates contributions from various disciplines or develops interdisciplinary approaches to these fields.

1ST DR. GRETLIES CRUSE - CUP

In memory of our colleague Dr. Gretlies Kruse, who died last year, the first Cup of the same name took place on Wednesday, 19.06.19.

The Beach Volleyball Tournament was organized by the participants of the corresponding course. A two-man and a four-man field were offered. In both competitions there were a total of eleven teams, consisting of sports students, who measured themselves against each other in a fair competition. Perhaps because of the regular training, teams from the current beach volleyball course won in both fields. So "the second best" could not live up to their name and won the two-man competition. In the teams of four, the "volleyball gang" prevailed and secured first place. After the obligatory award ceremony, the successful tournament day was rounded off with a joint barbecue and a cosy get-together.

The presented challenge cup (see photo) was symbolically presented and will be exhibited in the future in the corridor of the Institute for Movement, Sport and Health in building 16 together with the current winner photos and certificates in a showcase.

From now on, the tournament will be held once a year in the summer semester.
