[236] A thinking person’s guide to solving problems on ‘MTSU On the Record’

MURFREESBORO — A step-by-step guide to both problem-solving and a deeper thought process is the subject of the next “MTSU On the Record” radio program.

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Colby Jubenville, a professor in the Department of Health and Human Performance, will air from 8 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 19, and from 6 to 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 25, on WMOT-FM/Roots Radio 89.5 and

Jubenville has devised a rubric called a “Self-Directed, Self-Selected Coaching Model,” which he implemented in his fall 2016 classes. It’s a three-phase structure that helps students investigate issues in an organized way.

“I will say, ‘Tell me a typical problem in the industry,’” Jubenville explained. “And the question was, ‘Should high-school athletic directors be able to actively pursue corporate sponsorships in order to build quality athletic programs?’”

The students will attack the problem individually within Jubenville’s template, first researching concepts and theories, exploring real-world results and analyzing the audience, statistics and motivations that factor into the issue.
