Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module will be delivered via lectures to develop the underpinning theory within learning outcome 1 and practical classes

emphasising the applied nature of the module content associated with outcomes 2 to 4 in particular. This allows students to be fully engaged in a practical sense to the theory using various up-to-date and relevant contexts. Moreover to learn and practise the use of PSB Academy’s excellent biomechanics equipment and technological resources for the purposes of collecting, reporting and discussing biomechanical data. Students are encouraged to take an active part in these classes, to think critically about the application of theory in activities of their choice and present this consideration within group discussions and within the appropriate assessment tasks.


Formative Assessment:
Assessment tasks associated with this module allow students to choose their own context to show their understanding of the theory. Students will be given an initial formative assessment in the form of an online test multiple choice and short answer test. Students will be given one-to-one feedback during tutorial sessions.


Summative Assessment:
Three online multiple choice and short answer tests are used to allow students to develop and monitor their own learning experience and make decisions about maximising their opportunities for personal development. Students will carry out a small piece of applied research and present the results in the form of a poster. The class tests assessing outcomes 1 and 3, and a poster task assesses outcomes 2 and 4.
