Roland Naul receives AIESEP fellowship

The long-time president of the Willibald Gebhardt Institute and current WGI project partner Prof. Dr. Roland Naul was named AIESEP Fellow at the AIESEP World Congress 2022 of the International Association for Physical Education in Higher Education (AIESEP). In addition to Roland Naul, Thomas McKenzie, Professor Emeritus at San Diego State University, was also awarded this honor at the 2022 World Congress on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Naul was nominated for the Fellowship Award by previous AIESEP President Marc Cloes and Uwe Pühse, with whom Naul also works closely within the European Council of Research in Physical Education and School Sport (CEREPS).

With Roland Naul and Thomas McKenzie, two individuals who meet the award criteria in a special way were honored in 2022, and whom AIESEP thus recognizes for their scientific excellence in research in physical education, physical activity, and physical education across the lifespan. AIESEP also recognizes their outstanding achievements in professional practice in the field of physical education, physical activity, and sport pedagogy across the lifespan.

The Executive Board and members of the WGI congratulate Roland Naul on this special award.
