Daniel Frankl, Ph.D., CSU Los Angeles
After graduating from the Zinman College at the Wingate Institute in 1973 (elementary & secondary physical education teaching credentials), I served as a combat fitness instructor (1974-76) and officer (1976-78) at the IDF's Combat Fitness Center. My professional training in physical education includes a B.A. degree in Physical Education from SUNY Brockport (1982), and M.S. (1984), & Ph.D. degrees from SIU Carbondale (1989). Prior to joining the physical education faculty at CSLA in the Fall of 1991 I taught physical education at the Zinman College (1978-1981), at the University of Southern California (1988-1991) and Pepperdine University (Spring, 1989).
My area of specialty is in sociology and psychology of physical education and sport. I also have a strong background in applied motor learning, history and philosophy of physical education and sport, physical fitness, gymnastics, swimming, soccer, and tennis.
At CSLA I serve as (1) member of the Advisory Committee for the Center for Effective Teaching and Learning, and (2) member of the Faculty Development Partnership Program. My service on university, school, and department committees includes the Institutional Review Board--Human Subjects, Technology Roundtable, and the departmental Search, Faculty and Student Affairs, and Tenure and Promotion Committees.
Outside the University I hold positions, such as, Director of Applied Research for the SoftSport Corporation, member of the editorial board and section editor (physical education) of Kineziology: International Scientific Journal of Kinesiology and Sport, and Amateur Athletic Foundation Youth Sports Program Consultant.
My wife Sally Frankl, M.D., Diplomate American Board of Internal Medicine, and I worship Avi (born on December 16, 1989) and Hannah (born on August 31, 1995).
I enjoy boardsailing, tennis, rollerskating, soccer, bicycling, fishing, hiking and reading anything about Internet and PC technology.
