Research Interests:

Dr. David Telles-Langdon's research interests can be divided into three main areas: Psycho-social impact of coaching on youth sport experiences, competency-based education, and the learning process involved in moral-reasoning. His research is driven by his conviction that sport is important as a vehicle to increase physical activity amongst young people, in particular he is interested in the impact of coaching and coach education on youth sport experiences. He has conducted research examining the competency-based coach education in Canada with an interest in the incorporation of current pedagogy and motor learning concepts. Theoretically, he draws on social constructivist principles, in particular experiential learning and reflective practice.
