This unit provides students with an understanding of what is required to work in a high performance environment and the necessary skills essential for individual, program and team success. Foundation content will focus on ways of learning, thinking, behaving and influencing. Principles of high performance sport will be considered along with concepts related to working within multi- and inter-disciplinary teams, role clarity, culture development, evidence based decision-making, evaluation, continuous improvement, leadership and management. Case studies and problem based learning approaches will be used to allow students to understand and apply when, how and why sport science and their own personal contribution can have a performance impact. The knowledge and competencies of the sport scientist and high performance manager in sport, and how to become professionally accredited with Exercise and Sport Science Australia will also be addressed.
