About the Author

Dr. Watkinson PhD, MA, BPE, BA held administrative positions as Associate Dean Academic, Associate Dean Research, and Chair in the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta from 1988-2007. Dr. Watkinson's research focuses on the participation of children in playful physical activity, especially those with disability or movement difficulty. With an overall goal of understanding the factors that contribute to the inclusion of all children in opportunities for physical play, her research programme has explored the role of movement competence, perceptions of self and perceptions of the activity 'climate' in children's decisions to participate on the playground. Most recently, Dr. Watkinson and her students have developed protocols for the identification of children who are not taking part in recess activity and for the subsequent assessment of playground movement competence.
