Dengel leads Summer Olympics course in London
Dr. Don Dengel, associate professor of exercise physiology, recently returned from teaching a course in London, England. KIN 4520: The Impact of 1908, 1948 & 2012 Olympics on London, focused on the legacy of the three Summer Olympics on the city of London as well as the United Kingdom. In addition to lectures on the three Olympics, students toured different venues involved in the 1908, 1948 and upcoming 2012 Summer Olympic Games as well as broadcasting and culture sites in and around London, including the BBC (shown in photo).
The three- week course involved 25 students from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities School of Kinesiology, Carlson School of Management, and Engineering, as well as the University of Minnesota-Crookston. Dr. Dengel plans to offer this course again during the 2012-2013 Winter Break when the 2012 Summer Olympic Games planning and venues will be underway.
