Full course description
Coaching in addition to teaching can make for long and grueling workdays. The problem is how the multiple responsibilities of being a teacher and a coach create role conflict for individuals in the teacher-coach (TC) profession. This role conflict causes burnout, exhaustion, and turnover among teacher/coaches. Resolving this problem is critical due to the amount of influence teacher/coaches have upon their student athletes. The purpose of this course is to identify causes of teacher-coach role conflict and to identify possible solutions to the problem.
