Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

What Has Happened to RT Curriculum Reform?

I just read an editorial on the need for curriculum reform in physical education. Having read it made me ask myself "whatever happened to RT curriculum reform efforts?"

I guess I am getting old and grumpy -- but it seems to me that RT educators have dropped the ball in terms of curriculum reform. This is a sad state of affairs if true.

Perhaps more is going in with RT curriculum reform than I know. If so, I hope someone will share information about what is happening.

If nothing is happening, shame on the current RT educators.

I agree. All this talk for years about the need and nothing being done. I hope I'm wrong!
