In his presentation, Professor Terry will provide a brief history of the discipline of sport and exercise psychology (SEP) and outline the varied roles and types of clients with whom an SEP professional might engage. He will then give his views on the current state of the profession, highlight examples of contemporary SEP projects based on digital technology, and crystal ball gaze some potential developments in SEP by 2025. Two future scenarios are described below. Finally, he will look at the potential for open education resources to expand the impact of SEP globally, particularly to address public health issues in the developing world.
