About the Lecture Series:

Walter Kroll was one of the founding members of the Department of Exercise Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. For over three decades, he conducted novel research in Motor Integration, taught undergraduates in courses such as “Psychology of Coaching”, and mentored graduate students, many of whom began careers in higher education. His continual study of technical advances in a wide variety of fields helped him disseminate research concepts that had a major influence on others. These concepts included the use of intraclass correlation analysis of variance as a reliability instrument, the fractionated reaction time model, the use of multivariate statistical techniques to study, for example, the athlete personality, and neuromuscular stimulation as an impetus for Sensory Imparted Learning. In the mid 1970s, he was named a Commonwealth Professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He was the author of two widely acclaimed books, Perspectives in Physical Education and Graduate Study and Research in Physical Education, and he published over 50 papers during his illustrious career.

This annual lecture honors the many contributions made by Commonwealth Professor Walter Kroll.
