2021 unit information
Students will on average spend 150 hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.
1 x 1.5-hour class per week and in alternate weeks a practical or seminar session 1.5-hours in duration
This unit, Foundations of Sport and Exercise Pedagogy and Practice provides foundational content and interdisciplinary perspectives about the ways in which core discipline knowledge in anatomy and physiology applies to teaching about and for movement experiences in various contexts. As core content that underpins human movement, the unit will provide disciplinary studies in anatomy and physiology with a focus on building knowledge, skills and expertise drawn on in the teaching about, and instructional approaches relevant to, human movement.
It develops knowledge in anatomical and physiological language, cell and tissue structure and function and a focused exploration of body systems relevant to human survival and human movement (e.g., cardiovascular, respiratory, musculo-skeletal and nervous systems).
Further, the unit provides opportunity to develop key pedagogical skills in setting achievable learning goals that are developmentally appropriate and contextually relevant for learners, and to identify practices in organising effective teaching and learning sequences for human movement.
These are the Learning Outcomes (ULO) for this unit
At the completion of this unit, successful students can:
Deakin Graduate Learning Outcomes
Use anatomical language to describe the various levels of organisation of the human body and demonstrate knowledge, understanding and application of the basic structure and functioning at the cellular and tissue level of the human body
GLO1: Discipline-specific knowledge and capabilities
Demonstrate knowledge, understanding and application of the structure and functioning of body systems that act to support the musculo-skeletal system in body movement (e.g., cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems)
Develop and demonstrate a range of verbal and non-verbal communication strategies to support student engagement while demonstrating effective instruction skills that can be applied across various movement contexts
Identify a variety of student learning needs to set achievable learning goals that are developmentally appropriate and contextually relevant for learners in various movement contexts
GLO3: Digital literacy
Identify and assess a range of resources (including ICT) that engage students in their learning
Assess a learning space for safety across a variety of movement spaces
GLO4: Critical Learning
These Unit Learning Outcomes are applicable for all teaching periods throughout the year
The assessment due weeks provided may change. The Unit Chair will clarify the exact assessment requirements, including the due date, at the start of the teaching period.
Learning in this unit is supported with CloudDeakin learning activities and resources to assist students in achieving the Unit Learning Outcomes and associated assessment tasks. Students will be able to access weekly readings, additional learning activities, class guides (broad outlines of information presented to support class and seminar-based learning activities) and other additional resources on CloudDeakin.
