I am Nayoung (with two syllables), a lecturer in the Department of Sport and Event Management (SEM) in the Bournemouth University Business School (BUBS). Before joining, I worked as a clinical instructor in the Department of Physical Education at Gyeongsang National University and as an assistant professor in the Department of Football Science at Honam University. I taught a broad range of undergraduate courses at Texas A&M University where I completed my doctorate in Health and Kinesiology, with an emphasis on Sport Management. I received my master’s degree in Sport Science from Seoul National University, where I gained an in-depth knowledge of sport participation and consumer behaviour, and did my undergraduate degree in Sport and Leisure Studies from Uiduk University, where I played intercollegiate football competitively.
I am researching sport-related topics focused on cultural diversity, inclusion, and social justice in sport governance and leadership, as well as applications of systematic reviews in the field of sport management... I work towards unpacking the voices and experiences of those who have been historically underrepresented and minoritised in leadership positions in sport.
As an educator, I have implemented blended learning tools and strategies across active and experiential learning in both face-to-face and online settings. I particularly integrate a problem-based learning (PBL) into the lectureship to engage students in critical thinking, reflexivity, autonomy, teamwork, adaptability, to name a few, and enrich their knowledge and practical experiences. I am on the Teach BU trajectory to become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, and exercising.more
