Course Coordinator: To be announced
This course is designed to promote students’ knowledge and skills in sports and exercise science. It focuses on such aspects of sports science as physiology, movement analysis, training methods, and conditioning theory, all of which enrich students’ understanding of human movement and performance in sports and exercise.
The course covers the following topics:
- Introducing science into practice
- The body in sports and exercise: A systems approach
- Making sense of movement
- Exploring core stability
- Strength and conditioning
- Working with special populations
There will be eight two-hour tutorials and eight three-hour workshops.
There are four assignments and one examination. Students must use word processing software (such as Microsoft Word) to prepare the assignments, and submit the assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).
