Content

The scientific process is fundamental to sports scientists’ everyday work practice. To investigate questions that are of interest to coaches, athletes; and managers; sport scientists continually conduct research by reviewing the scientific literature or designing tests and evaluations. In this unit, students will undertake learning activities that focus on each stage of this scientific process, using contexts and examples specific to sports science. Modules will be delivered in a flipped (online) classroom mode with both formative and summative assessment tasks. Students will be provided with learning materials (e.g., selected readings, narrated lectures, videos) prior to online activities where their knowledge can be formatively assessed and feedback (by the unit team and other students) can be provided. Summative assessments will challenge students’ ability to apply their knowledge and communicate their understanding in an authentic manner for selected audiences, such as athletes, coaches, fellow sports scientists, or managers. The unit will also develop students’ ability to use a variety of communication media common for sports scientists such as brief written reports and infographic.
