Description of module content:

This module aims to introduce you to applied anatomy and physiology and enhance your knowledge and understanding of how the complex systems within the human body apply to football performance. Specifically, you will learn the key anatomical functions in a range of football activities. Additionally, the structure and function of the main physiological systems and their interaction will be covered in lectures, tutorials and practicals. You will also be introduced to the different testing methods to collect, interpret and academically present acute physiological responses during football specific activities.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to

LO1: Define the key anatomical functions involved in a range of football activities

LO2: Demonstrate an understanding of the structure and function of the main physiological systems (musculoskeletal, respiratory and cardiovascular) and their interaction in the human body in relation to football performance.

LO3: Acquire an understanding of the nervous and endocrine systems and their influence on body functions.

LO4: Describe the body’s acute physiological responses during a football specific activity.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The module content covering both anatomy and physiology will be delivered during face-to-face lectures, tutorials and practicals (LO 1, 2, 3).

The 2-hr weekly lectures will introduce you to the theoretical background information on applied anatomy and physiology in order to help you gain a fundamental understanding of the structure, organisation and functions of the human body (LO 1, 2, 3).

The 1-hr weekly tutorials will be student-centred to provide you a chance to discuss the topics in small group settings. In addition, the tutorials will allow you to develop relevant academic skills by completing assessment related tasks and subsequently engaging a peer-to-peer feedback provision (LO 1, 2, 3, 4).

The 2-hr weekly practical sessions will complement lectures and tutorials by growing your awareness of how to apply the theoretical knowledge in a practical setting (LO 1, 2, 3, 4). With help from the teaching team you will be required to develop important practical skills by having to set up, conduct and analyse a range of football specific field-based tests (LO4). During the practical sessions you will have to work independently and in small groups.

Guided online learning:
You will be expected to use a range of interactive online materials and tools to help further enhance your understanding of applied anatomy and physiology. The online support will include journal articles, links to conferences, media articles and will encourage interactive discussions to enhance your learning experience.

Formative Assessment:
You will have two formative assessments. The first formative assessment will be in the form of a mock practical assessment in order to better prepare you for the first summative assessment (i.e., practical examination). Secondly, you will engage in a peer-to-peer feedback provision on a section of your laboratory report. This is designed to help you with the final write-up of the physiology report (i.e., Component 2).

Summative Assessment:
The module will be assessed by two summative assessments:

Component 1: Practical examination (50%)
15-minute individual practical examination to test students’ applied anatomy and physiology knowledge and understanding (LO 1, 2).

Component 2: Laboratory report (50%)
A 1500 word laboratory report on acute physiological responses during football specific activities. The data for the laboratory report will be collected during practical sessions (LO 2, 3, 4).
