Judy Schultz’ research interests include the effects of kinesiology lab projects on high school STEM engagement, higher educational instructional improvement, movement planning disorders, and psychomotor behavior. Recently, Dr. Schultz received a two year ASBMB Hands-on Opportunities to Promote Engagement in Science (HOPES) grant from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She works with WSU faculty, Clarkston School District and Walla Walla Community College, preparing labs and training WSU and WWCC students to facilitate interactive Kinesiology related lab experiences for high school science students.
Dr. Schultz is a clinical assistant professor, teaching in the sport science program. Courses which she has taught include Motor Development, Motor Learning and Control, Assessment, Sport Philosophy, and Sport Psychology. Dr. Schultz is a LIFT (LEARN. INSPIRE. FOSTER. TRANSFORM) Fellow. LIFT is a component of the Transformational Change Initiative, a five-year grant with a goal to support students’ academic success, increase their life skills and resilience, and transform their experience at WSU. LIFT’s Faculty Fellows Program is designed to support instructors in using teaching methods and modules that have been shown to improve students’ engagement, connection, and learning; decrease course withdrawal and fail rates; and increase retention.
As another part of her effort to improve the college environment for students, she brings a Canine Companions for Independence service dog in training to her office and classes. Chai, shown in the picture, is currently in training as a hearing dog.
