Assessment method

Teaching and learning will comprise a combination of formal lectures, small group seminars, discussion forums, one to one tutorials, computer based learning and practical laboratory or coaching sessions. During the lectures, students will be introduced to core concepts with examples drawn from sports science and coaching contexts. Students will have the opportunity to apply knowledge gained in the lectures into a practical setting using specially designed activities during seminars and practical sessions in the Sports Science Laboratory, the Sports Hall or in the field. Seminars and practical sessions have been designed to allow students to gain ‘hands on’ experience of using equipment, testing procedures and field-based assessments. Theoretical and practical use of research methods has been built into the modules allowing the student to analyse data when it is collected to enhance understanding and utilisation of statistical methods.
