Suggest IFT University Projects
As a professor, are you looking for projects for your classes to complete? Below we have provided several project and activity ideas in which we would love for your students to take part.
Champion’s Rx (CRx) Submission
Once students have gained proficiency in both cardiovascular and strength training for individuals with disability, have them submit a workout of the day for each component of the Champion’s Rx program. CRx is a daily high-intensity workout program for individuals of all ability levels. The workouts are divided into three main classes based on ability levels. Students should be able to submit a workout that is similar yet appropriate for all three classes. CRx can be found through NCHPAD’s homepage or directly at www.nchpad.org/CRx. After you have reviewed and approved the workouts, students can submit them using the forms found on the right-hand corner of the page under “Submit Workout.” If deemed appropriate, the student’s workout will be used in the program, along with the student's name and university (if you both want that information included).
Endless CapABILITIES Blog
You may also have students blog about their experiences in class or about disability and health in general. Topics may cover a wide range of subjects, from nutrition to exercise to general health. Once blogs have been graded and checked for grammatical errors they may be submitted by contacting blog manager Bob Lujano directly (email@example.com) or through the blog contact page. Be sure to contact Bob before your students send submissions to make him aware of the class project. For sample posts, our blog can be found through our home page or directly at http://blog.nchpad.org.
Have your students conduct assessments using one of our inclusion and accessibility assessment tools. There are a number of different assessment tools depending on the location you choose to assess, whether it be a fitness center, locker room, the university as a whole, or other built environments and public spaces out in the community. Our assessment tools can be found at www.nchpad.org/1261/5950/Assessment~Tools. Feel free to share your results with us, and reach out to our information specialists with any questions you may have about conducting these assessments.
Has your class developed any products or resources on disability, inclusion and/or health that the world needs to know about it? Feel free to send it to us for review and, if deemed appropriate, we can host it on our website. Just email them to Kelly Bonner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
