How to bridge from academics to practice?


The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA / ACK) wants to help students of Kinesiology and Physical Activity as you are to enter the work force or to continue studies in specialties. That’s why #KinStartUpKit is a great tool for undergraduates and graduates to get started as Kinesiologists. CKA  / ACK invites you to take the time to better understand how Kinesiology is practiced in Canada and thus help you achieve your career goals.

Presenting the New Introduction Video

Are you an educator in a kinesiology program in Ontario? Actively involved in kinesiology student life? A kinesiology student in Ontario? The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance is reaching out to you with a professional learning opportunity for your classes and career events - a virtual tool for you and future Kins!

CKA Coordinator Brooke Hamilton, R.Kin, would like to discuss with you how this tool can benefit Ontario kinesiology students and when in your 2020/2021 academic/events calendar a virtual #KinStartUpKit presentation, with an interactive question and answer period for students, would be opportune for you.

With the loss of many of the in-person career and future-inspired sessions that upper level kinesiology students are typically able to participate in, this opportunity for kin students to learn about their career options and next steps in the field of kinesiology will be an excellent experience that has already been curated for a virtual experience!

The CKA’s #KinStartUpKit is a free, online educational tool to help kinesiology students and graduates navigate through the kinesiology industry when nearing and upon completing their studies. The goal for the CKA with this kit is to share the tool with university students directly so they can feel better prepared and informed upon completion of their studies. We discuss and provide answers to the big questions like "who's who in the industry?", "should I begin my career or continue with additional studies?", and "where to begin a career in kinesiology?".
