Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module will be taught through a series of lectures, tutorials, and field based practicals. The main focus of the learning and teaching approach is to allow you to recognise and develop an awareness of the application of sport and exercise science to physical activity and sport, therefore three blocks of practical workshops and tutorials are the main learning environment. This will provide opportunities for you to collect biomechanical, physiological and psychological
information on a physical performance using appropriate tools (LO1), hence define key biomechanical, physiological and psychological principles relating to a specific physical activity in the practical environment (LO2) and gain an appreciation of the information collected during the observation within in a sport and exercise science context (LO3).

Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment occurs through the use of revision /review questions at the end of each tutorial session, with a quiz used to test last session's material at the start of new sessions.

Summative Assessment:
Component 1 - Summative assessment includes a series of 3 on-line class based quizzes at the end of each topic block (wk’s 5, 8, 11), testing your understanding of the three separate topics covered. [30% weighting each]

Component 1 - A practical lab based test will be carried out in week 12 to assess your understanding of generic lab based requirements to prepare a participant for running a laboratory or field based testing session.
