UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
Provides students with the opportunity to apply the principles and objectives of an effective training program. Program design is studied in detail in relation to both fitness and performance. Aspects of planning, interview, prescription, monitoring and testing techniques will be studied as well as advanced topics in exercise physiology including exercise in extreme environments, ergogenic aids, and immunology.
- Exercise prescription and testing
- Training planning and monitoring
- Advanced topics in exercise physiology
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||GA2||GA3||GA4||GA5||GA6||GA7|
|1||demonstrate knowledge of, and assess, appropriate exercise testing protocols for different individuals|
|2||apply knowledge of the principles of exercise prescription|
|3||respond to and reflect on challenges faced in training monitoring and prescription|
|4||explain the body's physiological responses to specific training methods, environmental stresses, and ergogenic aids|
