We are reaching out to you today to ask for your contribution to collecting data on programmes, courses, seminars and workshops offering Olympic content at and beyond university level (universities, Olympic Studies and Research Centres, National Olympic Academies, etc.).
The main goals of this database are to give increased visibility of educational initiatives in Olympic studies, to acknowledge the work of all the universities and academic representatives contributing to sharing Olympic knowledge via educational programmes, and to allow for easier orientation for students searching for the most suitable course.
The database will be first available to all the contributors and later to Olympic Movement representatives and the public worldwide.
This initiative is led by Prof. Stephan Wassong (German Sport University Cologne) and Prof. Thierry Zintz (Olympic Chair – Université catholique de Louvain), in close coordination with the IOC Olympic Studies Centre and the IOC Olympic Education Commission.
For those of you managing a degree programme, course, seminar or workshop with Olympic content, we kindly ask you to complete the online questionnaire (available in English, French and Spanish) yourself.
For everybody, can you please share this email with any colleague who is involved in these kind of activities for him/her to fill out?
Please fill out the questionnaire here:
Please note that the questionnaire requires no longer than 20 minutes of your time and will remain accessible from 15 October to 1 December 2018.
We thank you in advance for your kind cooperation. Should you have any questions about this questionnaire, don’t hesitate to get in touch with either Thierry or Stephan.
