Learning outcomes and graduate attributes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

GA1: Intellectual rigour, GA2: Creativity, GA3: Ethical practice, GA4: Knowledge of a discipline, GA5: Lifelong learning, GA6: Communication and social skills, GA7: Cultural competence
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 discuss the major theoretical perspectives in motor development
2 detail the development of motor skills across the lifespan
3 describe the structural, physiological and perceptual-motor changes that occur across the lifespan
4 identify the effects of exercise and physical activity on growth, development and ageing
5 analyse human growth and development peer-reviewed scientific research
6 integrate growth and development knowledge and skills with other areas of sport and exercise science
