Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Card’s areas of teaching and research interests include pre-service and teacher education focused on health and physical education and health promoting schools. His research projects have focused on children and youth in Newfoundland and Labrador and engaging policy makers, practitioners and researchers in jointly setting priorities for youth health in schools across Canada, such as with the development of Core Indicators and Measures of Physical Activity. He is currently working on a project to enhance the social and emotional development of Qalipu First Nation youth in schools. The project (funded by the McConnell Foundation) includes understanding how teachers construct and use health messages. He is also the Managing Editor of Revue phénEPS / PHEnex Journal which features works on issues in physical education, health, dance, recreation, and leisure studies.
