International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing (IJSMM), Vol. 4, No. 2/3, 2008

Abstract: Wilber's (2000a–b; 2006) All Quadrant, All Level (AQAL) Integral approach provides an expansive theoretical platform from which instructors may develop innovative pedagogical and curricular elements within undergraduate sport management internship courses. Jowdy et al.'s (2004) recommendations, reflective of the AQAL model, guided the curriculum for such a course for a class of approximately 60 (Canadian) sport management internship students. The purposes of this paper are to discuss the curricular elements and learning activities of this experientially and developmentally focused internship course and to share the processes by which these learning activities were applied. It is hoped that the use of the AQAL model will encourage a review of current pedagogical practices and student learning within sport management internship courses.
