Karla Kubitz joined the Towson University Exercise Science faculty in the Department
of Kinesiology in 1998. Dr. Kubitz’s teaching interests focus on the psychological
aspects of sport and exercise. Her scholarly interests include understanding the psychophysiological
aspects of sport and exercise, the electrophysiological determinants of cognitive
fatigue, the efficacy of motivational interviewing, and the usefulness of the teaching
technique, team-based learning. During her career, she has received Summer Faculty
Research Fellowships in these areas from the Army, the Navy, and NASA. Dr. Kubitz
is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and the Immediate Past-President
of the Team-based Learning Collaborative.
