Learning outcomes

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:

demonstrate an understanding of the general physiological responses of the body to various exercise stresses and environmental changes;

demonstrate an understanding of typical physiological responses and adaptations to exercise and training of different types, duration and intensities;

demonstrate a level of competency in using various exercise testing apparatus and methods in assessment of physical fitness and defining physiological responses and adaptations that occur as a result of exercise and training;

be able to report and interpret physiological data and address common myths usually associated with exercise performance;

demonstrate a level of theoretical knowledge necessary for involvement in exercise prescription, training and conditioning.
