The aim of this unit is to enable students to develop an understanding of the nature of children's physical activity and the influences on this behaviour in a variety of contexts. Topics covered include: an introduction to children's physical activity in relation to health, physiology and behaviour; determinants and correlates of children's physical activity; and the promotion of physical activity in several settings. Tutorial/practical sessions address the application of the lecture material in a practical context for promoting physical activity to a group of children.
