Careers in Sport Fair

Sports careers fair to be held at WSU Everett

The College of Education’s sport management program is teaming up with WSU Everett to host the Careers in Sport Fair at that campus on Dec. 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“The goal of the fair is to introduce our undergraduate and graduate sport management students to a variety of sport career options,” said Tammy Crawford, a clinical assistant professor within the program. “Sport professionals will help students learn the importance of various experiences, better understand what working in sport looks like on a day-to-day basis, and allow students to envision their own career path.”

This is the first time the program has teamed up with WSU Everett, and as its chancellor Paul Pitre said, it just made sense.

“We are excited to welcome Sport Management to Everett because the opportunity for us to collaborate and build something here is tremendous,” Pitre said. “We already have so many interns and alums active here, it makes a lot of sense for us to work together. Beyond that, it is feels good to be able to collaborate with my college, the College of Education.”

In addition to WSU students, students from Seattle University’s graduate program, as well as the University of Washington’s Intercollegiate Athletic Leadership graduate program, have been invited. Additionally, students from local community colleges are encouraged to participate.

In the spirit of collaboration, opening remarks will be offered by Erin O’Connell, the University of Washington’s senior woman’s athletic administrator, followed up by individuals representing Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, Everett Community College Athletics, Seattle Mariners, Sounders FC, Seattle Storm, Everett AquaSox, Seafair, Special Olympics, and more.

A full schedule for the event can be found here.

A few highlights for the day include former Cougar athlete Colin Henderson presenting “Master Your Mindset”, as well as HR specialist from the Mariners and Sounders teaching participants how to navigate an application process, including resume writing, cover letters, and interview tactics.

“The day will be devoted to students being able to hear from experts in community and university recreation, analytics, event operations, corporate partnerships, marketing and fan engagement, and general sport administration,” Crawford said. “This truly is a unique opportunity for not only our students, but for friends from other institutions, to learn more and to be inspired.”

Sport Management graduate program information session

In the meeting, we will discuss the purpose of pursuing a master’s degree, provide an overview of the WSU Sport Management master’s program, discuss funding options at WSU and elsewhere, and answer any questions students might have. A current WSU Sport Management master’s student will share her experience as a student and graduate assistant. The meeting will open with a short presentation, followed by plenty of time for questions. Late drop-ins are welcome to join us “open house”-style any time until 2 p.m.

Creating a model of language learner task engagement: Process and outcome

Presenters:  Joy Egbert with Seyed Abdollah Shahrokni, Reima Abobaker, Pruksapan Bantawtook, Haixia He, & Mira Bekar

Our international research team is looking at the construct of task engagement across cultures to support research and teaching around this crucial topic.

How To: Academic Writing

Although formulaic and attractive, students find academic writing hard to fully acquire and master. Research has shown that students’ personal commitments and various forms of writing support affect progress in their studies (Martunsio & Turkulainen, 2010). In this presentation, Dr. Mira Bekar will focus on the importance of summarizing, paraphrasing texts, and recognizing logical fallacies. Acquiring all these skills can help academic writers gain more confidence and structure their thoughts in a more reader-friendly way. Students will be invited to discuss their own strategies of designing logical texts and presenting other people’s views.

Dr. Bekar is Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, R. N. Macedonia. She has been teaching applied linguistics and academic writing to Macedonian and international students. Her research interests include (critical) discourse analysis, academic L1/L2 writing, online communication, and qualitative research methods. She is also an eco-activist.

“Esports Immigration Alternatives for International Gamers” Sport Management Research Meeting

HENRY EVANS, J.D., M.A., will speak in the third Sport Management research meeting of the Fall 2019 semester.

His presentation, “Esports Immigration Alternatives for International Gamers,” happens 4:00–5:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 13, in Cleveland Hall 255 in Pullman, Washington.

Professional video gaming has become increasingly popularity over the last decade. Video games have become more than just a source of entertainment and are now a source of livelihood for many professional gamers. Many of them are not residents of the United States but still wish to enter the country to compete in major tournaments in the United States. Entry has proven difficult due to unreliable and inconsistent visa options for professional gamers, forcing them to either be left behind or enter the country without appropriate documentation. This presentation will discuss the options esports competitors have to temporarily visit the United States until the P-1A visa (granted to athletes and performers) becomes a more stable option for professional gamers.

Sport Management research meetings are organized by the Sport Management program at Washington State University. They occur monthly and feature faculty and student presentations of ongoing and completed research projects. Students and faculty from all programs are welcome to attend.

A Balancing Act: Faculty and First Gen

SUPPORTING OUR FIRST GEN COUGS

A NASPA First Forward Webinar

Navigating higher education as a first-generation college students can be challenging. Becoming faculty and identifying as first-gen adds a contextual layer to the higher education journey that must be discussed and explored! Presenters will share testimonials and personal narratives about how their intersecting identities, personal backgrounds, and life experiences inform their pedagogy and research practices. They will also share how identifying as first-gen continues to influence their academic identities. As such, the live briefing will focus on the lived.

This event is sponsored by: the WSU Division of Student Affairs, Office for Access & Opportunity, College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), TRIO Student Support Services, TRIO Ronald E. McNair Achievement Program, Multicultural Student Services, Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center, Global Campus, College of Education, The Bookie, Common Reading Program and the ADVANCE grant.

Sport Management Research Meeting: Student Baseball Analytics

Four undergraduate students at Washington State University, Dante Ludlow, Matthew Cho, Alex Yano and Reagan Stubb, will speak in the first Sport Management research meeting of the Fall 2019 semester. Their presentation entitled, “MLB Pitching Strategies: 2019 SABR Diamond Dollars Case Competition,” happens 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, September 18, in Cleveland Hall 255 in Pullman.

This spring, Washington State University had its first-ever team of students compete in the Diamond Dollars Case Competition at the Society for American Baseball Research Analytics Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. Undergraduate students Dante Ludlow, Matthew Cho, Alex Yano, and Reagan Stubb were tasked with developing a strategy for MLB teams to most effectively distribute innings within a pitching staff. The team will be presenting their findings and projected results for every MLB team, as well as discussing the experience of traveling to the conference, a trip that was partially funded by the Sport Management program.

Sport Management research meetings are organized by the Sport Management program at Washington State University. They occur monthly and feature faculty and student presentations of ongoing and completed research projects. Students and faculty from all programs are welcome to attend.
