Dr Donna Windard - Programme Leader
I specialise in research which increases our understanding of the impact of recent UK sport and educational policies on the structure and organisation of PE, teachers' ideologies and teachers' pedagogies. I currently supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate students at Lincoln, and contribute to a number of research groups including the Health Advancement Research Team, and Youth Sport Research Group.Academic Staff List
We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
Previous students have successfully progressed on to School-centred Teacher Training or PGCEs to become PE teachers. Opportunities are available both in Lincoln and throughout the UK. Alternatively, students may choose to progress to Master’s programmes in education, enter the Armed Forces, or work in sport development.
Students can benefit from access to specialist equipment in the University’s Human Performance Centre for study and research. Our fully-equipped Sports Centre comprises a gym, double sports hall, squash courts, dance studio, and all-weather pitches.

Health and exercise professionals play an important role in tackling the health challenges we face as a society with a range of physical activities.
Sports therapy is a dynamic field and therapists are a crucial part of medical teams at many sports clubs, working alongside other professionals.
Sports coaches inspire teams and individuals to achieve their goals, working across a variety of sports and a range of levels.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
