Overall aims and purpose

Ydych chi eisiau deall pam, er enghraifft, bod rhai athletwyr yn perfformio'n well nag eraill dan bwysau, pam mae gordewdra ar gynnydd, sut mae hyfforddiant ac adferiad yn dylanwadu ar berfformiad neu rywbeth arall sy'n gysylltiedig â chwaraeon a gweithgarwch corfforol? Os felly, mae'r modiwl hwn ar eich cyfer chi! Mae ymchwil yn sylfaenol i'r hyn yr ydym ni, fel gwyddonwyr, yn ei wneud ac yn llywio ymarfer yn y diwydiant chwaraeon, iechyd a ffitrwydd. Felly, mae datblygu sgiliau ymchwil da a gallu dadansoddi data gwyddonol yn sgiliau allweddol i'w datblygu er mwyn cefnogi'ch gyrfa lwyddiannus. Mae'r modiwl yn ymarferol ac yn cynnwys gweithgareddau ymarferol sy'n ymwneud â rheoli data, cynnal dadansoddiadau data, deall gwahanol ddulliau o fynd i'r afael â gwyddoniaeth, a datblygu eich prosiectau ymchwil eich hun. Mae'r rhain yn sgiliau graddedigion byd go iawn a fydd yn eich gwneud yn fwy cyflogadwy.

Do you want to understand why, for example, some athletes perform better than others under pressure, why obesity is on the rise, how training and recovery influences performance or something else related to sport and physical activity? If so this module is for you! Research is fundamental to what we, as scientists, do and informs practice in the sport, health and fitness industry. Therefore, developing good research skills and being able to analyse scientific data are key skills to develop in order to support your successful career. The module is hands on and involves practical activities relating to data management, running data analyses, understanding different approaches to science, and developing your own research projects. These are real world graduate skills that will help make you more employable.

Course content

Wedi'i gyflwyno gan ymchwilwyr gweithredol ac ymarferwyr yn y maes chwaraeon ac ymarfer, mae'r modiwl hwn wedi'i rannu'n ddwy gydran:

Rhan A Dulliau o gynnal ymchwil lwyddiannus a chynllunio astudiaethau gwyddonol

Rhan B Sut i ddadansoddi a deall data: Ystadegau cyfrifiadol

Delivered by active researchers and practitioners within the sport and exercise domain, this module is split into two components:

Part A Approaches to conducting successful research and designing scientific studies

Part B How to analyse and understand data: Computational statistics

sylw weddol gynhwysfawr. trefnu a'u strwythuro'n dda. Dealltwriaeth dda o'r deunydd.

Learning outcomes

  1. Dehongli prif nodweddion allbrint cyfrifiadurol SPSS o ANOVA a dadansoddiad atchweliad.

  2. Gwerthfawrogi sut mae gwahanol athroniaethau am ffyrdd o wybod dylanwad un ymagwedd at gynllunio ymchwil

  3. Deall gweithdrefnau samplo

  4. Deall yr egwyddorion sy'n sail mesur mewn ymchwil meintiol

  5. Deall egwyddorion dylunio arbrofol

  6. Cynnal gweithdrefnau sylfaenol yn y dadansoddiad o'r data ansoddol

  7. Trefnu data mewn taenlen SPSS.

  8. Dangos dealltwriaeth o egwyddorion sylfaenol profion amrywiant (e.e., ANOVA) a'r atchweliad (atchweliad syml a lluosog)
