Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Both individual tasks and group work will play a key role in the learning and teaching approach of this module although all assessments are individual tasks. Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs

This module will be delivered via lectures and practical classes (LOs1-3) emphasising the applied nature of the module content. This allows students to be fully engaged in a practical sense to the theory using various up-to-date and relevant contexts and utilising the University’s excellent Biomechanics related equipment and technological resources. Students are encouraged to take an active part in these classes, and assessment tasks associated with this module allow students to choose their own context to show their understanding of the theory.

The assessment tasks are designed to assess the learning required to satisfy all learning outcomes, the Moodle [VLE] tests being integral to the application of theory to practice which will assess LOs 1 & 2.

Students will be asked to respond to a range of questions, which relate to specific areas being taught as follows:
Test 1 (formative) requires students to remind themselves of linear biomechanics and the skeletal system with respect to motion;
Test 2 (formative) is focussed around the development of students’ understanding of key principles being considered in the practical and tutorial sessions
Test 3 (summative – worth 30% of the overall module mark) relates to all key principles including theory and application of biomechanics, including methodological issues in data collection. The questions will be predominantly multiple choice. This assessment is designed to provide students with feedback on their progress and should inform areas for improvement prior to the final examination assessment.

The final centrally timetabled examination will encourage students to use the information collected through lectures and practical 3.
