This unit is designed to enable students to understand and apply the basic requirements of health and fitness testing, exercise prescription, instruction, supervision and communication for the general population. This unit will be taught via a modified team-based learning model. Students will attend nine seminars across the trimester (specific dates available via CloudDeakin) where they will be assessed individually on their understanding of pre-reading materials and then in groups of a maximum of 4 students, their delivery of an exercise testing protocol, training programme and fact sheet. In laboratories students will be responsible for delivering health and fitness tests and training programs of their own design to their peers.
