Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module will be taught through a series of lectures, tutorials and workshops to increase specific knowledge of the broad

topic of anatomy and physiology in sport and exercise.

The lectures and tutorials are also used to provide information and background on the evidence base for the understanding of the complex field of anatomy and physiology. The content will examine the nervous, endocrine, cardio-respiratory, musculoskeletal aspects of required for sport and exercise performance as well as homeostasis. The modular content will placed within the context of performance, coaching and injury prevention.

Tutorial sessions are used to encourage students to apply the content to the context of their choosing and to develop understanding. The lecture sessions will provide the theoretical content to help support the workshop sessions, which will be used to introduce the students to the various aspects of anatomy and physiology (LO 1-5). The practical sessions will also be used to introduce informed discussions related to the current research and the effect of the practice on their athletes (LO 1-5). Topics will be directed by recent literature and current issues within the culture of sport and exercise related to coaching, injury prevention and sporting performance.


Formative Assessment:
Each individual’s performance in formative assessments and interaction during the tutorial/workshops will be observed. The student’s ability to prepare for lecture and workshop tutorial discussions will have an impact on both the formative and summative assessments.



Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment for this module will be via 2 online assessments [week 4 - 30 minutes & week 14 - 50 minutes] and 1 individual essay (of 2000 words in length)

Description of module content:

You will focus on the structure, organisation and functions of the human body and its own self-regulating environment and systems. This will include an examination of the nervous, endocrine, respiratory, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems.
You can expect this to include study of the central and peripheral nervous systems, the endocrine glands and the hormones they produce, the human skeleton, major anatomical landmarks, bone formation and function, types of joints and their movements. You will also study muscle structure and functions.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Appreciate the structure, organisation and function of the human body as a whole system.
LO2: Recognise the structure, organisation and function of the Respiratory and Cardiovascular systems
LO3: Know the structure, organisation and function of the Musculoskeletal System.
LO4: Examine the nervous and endocrine systems and their influence on body functions.
LO5: Consider how knowledge of anatomy and physiology might be applied in a sporting context.
