The course will embody the three-dimensional health which are the dimensions of body, psychology and society, and realize the five targets of sports, which are participation, sports skills, physical health, mental health and social adaptation.

The course focuses on cultivating students’ interests. By integrating domestic and international educational resources with innovative methods, the course will promote international characteristics and carry out featured physical education courses to promote whole-person education centering the aim of “Five C” education in WKU.

We aim at reforming the evaluation system, bettering the screening and selection function of evaluation, innovate and open teaching methods.
