Teaching and Research Areas

Dr. Priebe holds a teaching focused faculty position. In line with College of Kinesiology strategic priorities for equity, diversity, and inclusion, her teaching aspirations are to foster an equitable and diverse learning community that emphasizes the integration of concepts, encourages collaboration and inclusion, promotes critical thinking, and leaves room for curiosity. She has taught a variety of graduate and undergraduate courses and enjoys bringing practical examples from her coaching and clinical experience in Kinesiology into the classroom. She also strives to incorporate elements of the UN Sustainability Development Goals into her teaching and research practice (e.g., research and student learning opportunities around built environment and ways that physical activity can contribute to a more sustainable world).

Dr. Priebe’s research has focused on group norms, health messaging, multiple health behaviour change, public health, and program evaluation. Elements of her past evaluation work for the Public Health Agency of Canada-funded Run to Quit program align best with the research theme of healthy aging and management of chronic conditions . To compliment her teaching practice, she has published research in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
