Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The lecture programme aims to develop the students’ ability to problem solve through reflection on theory and practice. The workshops and practical sessions aim to develop student discussion and interaction in the context of real life situations and introduce quantitative research methods through practice. The assessment (laboratory report), aims to develop a practical and theoretically driven approach to sport psychology and will assess the design of an experiment (Laboratory Report) in the area of sport psychology. This allows an explicit focus on the definitions of sport psychology and discussion around the scientific study of sport behaviour (LO1), where contemporary approaches to motivation, coping and mental skills in the context of sport are outlined and discussed, (LO2), and key mental skills and their theoretical background explained within the proper context (LO3). Expertise will form the foundations of the module through the final half of the semester followed by sport psychology skills to demonstrate the needs of developing performers within their career development and performances, as such enable to students to explain key concepts of expertise (LO4). Finally, the practical nature of the course and coursework assessment enables the students to conduct simple quantitative data collections examining sport and expertise research questions (LO5).

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

Summative assessment includes a group laboratory report based on the students’ data collection in practical sessions, to be submitted in week 10 and a 2 hour online class test in week 14.
