Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module is taught through a series of lectures, tutorials, and laboratory-based practical classes covering the major aerobic and anaerobic systems. The work required for the practical classes, the laboratory report submission and the online assessments have all got formal tutorial sessions directly linked with them (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5).

The practical classes will enable students to design and implement graded exercise tests, collect and analyse expired air samples and perform blood lactate sampling and analysis (LO1,2,5). Students are guided by the detailed work books and tutorial information in terms of the practical work they have to complete, and data they have to collect and handle (LOs 1, 2 & 5).

Analysis and discussion of the data collected is also formally guided through the use of prescribed tasks which the students have to complete and submit for formal assessment, (in some cases on line) (LOs 1,2 &5).

Moodle is used throughout this module. Students for example need to access Moodle for data collected in practical classes, to complete on line tests/assessments, and to complete online tutorial submissions which are linked to the practical sessions carried out in the Human Performance Laboratory.





Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment occurs with online assessment weeks 3 & 4 where students will be given opportunity to practice this assessment and receive feedback. Students can attend a drop-in session and receive feedback during week 13, one week prior to the lab report submission.

Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment occurs in weeks 7 and 13 with the completion of supervised online assessments, and in week 14 with the laboratory report submission (in pairs).

Description of module content:

In this module you will explore and analyse the aerobic and anaerobic capacities of the human in terms of measured physiological responses to exercise stressors, including responses to exercise in environmental extremes. You will use a range of scientific techniques to evaluate responses to acute exercise stressors and you will learn how the human adapts when exposed to chronic exercise stressors, and how ergogenic aids can facilitate this adaptation.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to
LO1: Contrast and evaluate the acute and chronic effects of differing exercise modalities on skeletal muscle metabolism, the respiratory system and the pulmonary system.
LO2: Demonstrate knowledge of the mechanisms involved in the blood lactate response to exercise.
LO3: Accurately assess the primary physiological mechanisms by which ergogenic aids exert their effects on exercise performance.
LO4: Describe the physiological responses to exercise in extreme environments, including exercise in the heat, cold and at altitude.
LO5: Demonstrate knowledge of exercise-related physiological measurements.
