UnLock Research

Research for Health & Physical Educators

We are pleased to be able to share some key resources with you! Dr. Lawrence F. Locke, professor Emeritus University of Massachusetts and one of the stalwart leaders in U.S. Sport Pedagogy for over four decades, has graciously allowed us to use his name to continue the legacy of his UnLocking Research materials.

Between 2003 and 2005, Professor Locke oversaw a terrific website that sought to assist teachers and scholars alike to become better informed about the many good things going on and connect them with the various aspects and dimensions of doing, reading, understanding, and interpreting research.

We are revitalizing this concept in the form of monthly translated research articles to help you in your career. These articles are translated by Ashley Phelps at the University of Texas at Austin.


These articles were translated by Shrehan Lynch at the University of Alabama.

From Theory Into Practice

The purpose of the Strategies column “Theory into Practice” is to distill high quality research into understandable and succinct information to help teachers. Each column summarizes research findings about a timely topic of interest to the readership to enable practitioners to apply research, knowledge and evidence-based practice in physical education and sports.
