Semester 1 a 2
Trefnydd: Dr Jonathan Moore
This module is intended to: 1) provide postgraduate learners with the opportunity to develop their understanding of principles and applications of physiology and training science to sport-related performance; 2) develop higher level subject specific and transferable skills; 3) prepare postgraduate students to meet the requirements of research, or employment outside of an academic / research environment.
During the module, you will develop existing knowledge and understanding in a range of physiology & training science topics including:
- Exercise fatigue
- The role of hormones, recovery and sleep
- Preparation for endurance sports - heart and circulatory adaptation in enduranceathletes, altitude and hypoxic training, heat acclimation/acclimatization
- The training process - needs analysis,periodization and programming
Important: Students who fail the module (overall module mark less than 50%) or miss module assessments, will be required to undertake a resit (mark capped at 50%) or first-sit assignment.
Evidence of basic knowledge and understanding of the principles and application of physiology to sports training and performance, critical analysis of available evidence; and, the ability to identify gaps or controversies in evdence. Most criteria are meet to an adequate standard; there may be a wide range in the quality of different components
Evidence of good knowledge and understanding of the principles and application of physiology to sports training and performance, critical analysis of available evidence; and, the ability to identify gaps or controversies in evdence. Most criteria are meet to a good standard; some may be met to a very good standard
Evidence of deep knowledge and understanding of the principles and application of physiology to sports training and performance; critical analysis of available evidence; and, the ability to identify gaps or controversies in evdence. Some criteria are meet to an exceptionally high standard; the remainder are met to an excellent standard
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of exercise fatigue, the role of hormones, recovery and sleep and apply this knowledge and understanding to performance sports
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of approaches to training used to prepare athletes for competition an apply this to provide an effective briefing.
Demonstrate scholarly ability to identify relevant scientific information, critically analyze existing knowledge, and to identify gaps or controversies
|Written assignment, including essay||Critique of a topic from semester one||
You are required to write a balanced discussion and evaluation of strengths, weaknesses and applicability to sports perfomance of a topic related to exercise fatigue and/or the role of recovery, sleeps and hormones. A suggested sequence for the ‘critical review’ or ‘critique’ is: A brief literature driven synthesis of your chosen topic An overview of the current limitations that exist Future directions for research in this topic Devise an experimental design to test one of these future directions OR Discuss the applied implications of this topic for a sport practitioner
|LLAFAR||Presentation for performance director||
Often academics and researchers are asked to communicate research evidence and other scientific information to a nonacademic audience. Your task is to deliver an oral briefing for a Performance Director that provides precise instructions and essential information concerning preparation of athletes for competition, based on up-to date research and applied practice. You have freedom to choose the focus for your briefing from a range of topics, such optimizing training for marathon competition, preparation for endurance competition in the heat, altitude training for sea-level competition, and developing a periodized annual training plan. The key to giving a successful briefing is to keep it accurate, concise and clear. You should select appropriate examples of up-to-date evidence from the literature and/or real world examples as supporting evidence. Also, you should be clear where limitations in current knowledge and understanding exist. The primary aim of this assessment is to test your ability to communicate research evidence to a performance director / coach in a way that guarantees nothing gets lost in translation.
Strategaeth addysgu a dysgu
Combination of lecture, seminar and tutorials. Learners work through the concepts with guidance from academic staff. Seminar activities will include open discussions or work on tasks in smaller groups in online breakout rooms. Learning relies on independent study skills and full enagement with online and other learning activities assigned by the tutor.
Directed and self-directed learning (e.g., previewing and reviewing lecturer recorded content, reading articles, working with fellow students on learning activities, preparing for assignments, watching other video resources).
