Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This is a fully online module with the majority of learning occurring through independent learning. A series of case studies and scenarios will support the application of theory to real world practice. This material will be assessed through the presentation of a case study and oral presentation. The module will also support the students in their learning and assessment by way of a discussion forum.

In this module there is a three way interface between teaching, research and coaching practice. The module is therefore designed to highlight
a) the assimilation of theory and practice, through research and teaching links,
b) the difficulties and numerous factors encountered by coaches associated with developing expertise,
c) student appreciation of the variability associated with developing expertise in relation to the immediate environment.




Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment will be applied throughout the delivery of the module by way of an on-line question and discussion forum. Self-assessment questions will be included within each unit of learning.

Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment will be applied to this module through a web-based presentation and a case study. The presentation will test the students understanding and critical analysis skills, through discussion and debate of a selected topic area. The Summative assessment will engage student’s through the appropriate research in developing an understanding of expertise development and how this is related to theory through an individual case study of a performer or coach.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
A web study guide has been written to support your learning. This module will be composed of 10 study units and two online discussion topic boards, as well as regular online help clinics. We recommend that you study each unit as it appears in the study guide. We have indicated the prescribed readings and were appropriate we have asked you to attempt various exercises and activities. These are designed to provide you with valuable examples and information to help deepen your understanding of the issues discussed in this module. It will allow you to apply your knowledge and understanding and also to enable you to monitor your progress as you move through the module, in line with the learning outcomes. Brief PowerPoint video summaries, highlighting important points in all ten units, will also be provided to you in the virtual online learning environment (VLE) used on this module. As you work through the module your lecturers and peers will support your learning through the discussion forums. It is important to participate in the online discussion board topics – take time to complete the required reading and prepare well in advance for these. This will greatly enhance your learning and your ability to fully participate in the module activities. Your contribution is important not just for your own learning, but provides stimulus for the learning of the whole group. In addition it provides ideas for the ongoing development of the module. We are all part of a team to ensure the successful delivery of this module.
You will be provided with the following electronic learning materials:
• A Web study Guide ( you can also print off in PDF format as well as read online)
• Electronic Text book
The web study guide has been written to support and supplement the material available in the text books and on the VLE. As you progress through the module additional resources will be recommended to supplement the material contained in the textbook. Therefore, it is important that you visit the VLE to access your other learning materials on a regular basis.


Formative Assessment:
Throughout all module units there are numerous exercises (reflective tasks & multiple choice questions). These exercises are designed to help you engage meaningfully with the materials and facilitate preparation for your main assessments. These exercises are required to be completed, and will enable you to get formative feedback on your understanding and progress.

Summative Assessment:
There are currently two assessment components for this module
The first assessment component is comprised of two elements: 1a) A written report, and 1b) In-unit reflective exercises. The written report (maximum 3000 words) is worth 50% of the module assessment total, to be completed by week 14 and will be based on a topic of your choice across all 10 units. Each unit has in-module exercises that need to be completed. The completion of all exercises across the module units by the end of week 14 is worth 10% of your module mark.

The second assessment is a video presentation (maximum 10 minutes), worth 40% of the coursework total, and is also to be completed by week 14. Again, this assessment will be based predominantly on a topic of your choice across all 10 units.

Description of module content:

You will have the opportunity to critically examine talent identification and development processes in different contexts and situations. The extent to which effective talent identification and development is dependent on a range of different, but inter-related factors will also be considered. In the first part of the module you will be considering broader topics related to sporting talent such as nature versus nurture, talent identification, developmental pathways and maturational considerations. In the second half of the module, you will be looking more specifically at how we can develop talent effectively by looking at the role of psychology, features of effective talent development environments, the role of the coach and significant others.

LO1: Critically appraise the development of athletic expertise
LO2: Critically evaluate the concepts and rationale for talent identification and development in sport
