Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to learning outcomes
This module is taught through a range of lectures, tutorials and practicals, covering the major themes behind various methods of injury rehabilitation and prehabilitation used in sport and exercise (LO1, LO2, LO4, and LO5). The group work presentation and individual assessments are introduced early in the tutorial sessions. Topics for the group work and individual assessments are chosen by the students, with group contracts designed and implemented by the various groups (LO2, LO3, and LO4). Tutorials are given to support the theory and encourage discussion through workshops and case study examples (LO3).

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
Four key employability skills are embedded and assessed: 1) Group work – students work together on a study conducted on a chosen rehabilitation method, and present to class cohort. 2) Communication (presentation) skills – oral and written communication skills are assessed in the group presentation. 3) IT – Students use Microsoft word to produce individual report and PowerPoint to present group presentation. 4) Critical thinking – students will utilise this skill during the writing of the laboratory report.


Research/teaching linkages
Short research papers and actual case studies are given in tutorials and lectures. Students are encouraged to utilise primary research sources and qualitative and quantitative analysis in preparing there presentations and individual research papers.

Supporting equality and diversity
Materials are provided in hard and soft (Moodle) formats, to ensure they are available to all students

Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment will be embedded in the tutorial sessions, with feedback on the students interpretation of the case studies presented.

Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment occurs in weeks 12 and 15, with a paired laboratory report on the research project and a web-based class test.

Description of module content:

Pain and muscle function. Balance and its functional role in rehabilitation and gait. Transversus abdominus/Multifidus. Flexibility and its role in rehabilitation. Regaining muscular strength, endurance and power. Elastic resistance, Swiss ball, Pilates, Isokinetics, EMG in rehabilitation. Cryotherapy/Heat. Massage and aquatic therapy in rehabilitation.


Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Illustrate the pathophysiology of muscle injuries.
LO2: Apply knowledge of muscle physiology to produce progressive strengthening exercises with relation to injury rehabilitation.
LO3: Based on the best evidence, demonstrate methods to maintain fitness whilst injured.
LO4: Demonstrate the role of muscle balance in the prevention of injuries for elite sports people and demonstrate knowledge of strengthening regimes that optimise muscular balance and co-ordination.
LO5: Examine the relationship between the sport specific requirements for strength and flexibility, for selected sports.
