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 and to promote contributions to healthy and active communities.
