Advanced Practice in Sport and Exercise Physiology
Advanced Practice in Sport and Exercise Physiology 2022-23
School Of Human And Behavioural Sciences
Module - Semester 1 & 2
The module will consist of a complementary blend of physiologically orientated practical sessions, theoretically driven workshops and accompanying seminars. The module is designed to integrate these complementary teaching approaches so that physiological theory can be mapped on to accompanying practice and so that optimal ways to interpret, package, and communicate practical data can be susequently considered.
The module will focus on specific physiological techniques and, as an indicative list, topics may include themes such as online gas analysis, critical power, economy of movement, and MAOD, amongst others.
-threshold -Pass: A basic grasp of theoretical knowledge with several gaps in understanding also evident. Preparation and application of pratical skills may be sufficient in some instances by may lack some attanetion to detail in others. While interpretation and communication of practical information may be good in some aspects, it may also lack quality and/or detail in other aspects. -good -Merit: Criteria will be met to a good - very good standard with students demonstrating good - very good preparation and administration of practical procedures, mostly understandable intepretation and communication of accompanying practical information for the target population, and a good-very good literature-based, theoretically-driven comprehension of the physiological processes behind certain practical tests There will however also be occasional gaps in theoretical knowledge, demonstration of practical skillsets, and the ability to interpret and communicate information effectively. -excellent -Distinction: Criteria will be met to an excellent standard with students demonstrating excellent preparation and administration of practical procedures, clear and understandable intepretation and communication of accompanying practical information for the target population, and a throrough literature-based and theoretically-driven comprehension of the physiological processes behind certain practical tests.
This assessment will require students to prepare and perform part of, or all of, a specific practical test from the module. The assessment will be individually marked in all cases.
In this assignment students will produce a verbal presentation that is targeted towards a pre-designated population. It will be used to communicate details about one of the physiological tests from the module. Marks will be awarded individually for presentations.
In this assignment students will write a written report for a pre-designated target population that will cover the physiological theory behind a specific practical test, how the physiological theory links to the practical test, and how this influences the interpretation of the practical test.
