Course Description

 

This course is designed to enable you to develop a basic knowledge of  the barriers and enablers to physical activity for individuals of all abilities from birth through adulthood. Emphasis will be placed on:

  • Childhood and the adolescent years.
  • Understanding the knowledge and preparation required to plan, implement and evaluate a physical activity program for people of all abilities.
  • Demonstration of the social model philosophy for the inclusion of all.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

 

In the Bachelor of Applied Science (Physical Education) (BP041), this course contributes to the development of the following Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of you and know how they learn (PLO 1).
  • Develop content knowledge and how to teach it (PLO 2).
  • Create and maintain a supportive and safe learning environment (PLO 4).
  • Engage professionally with colleagues, parent/carers and the community (PLO 7).

 

This course will contribute to your development of a range of Victorian Institute of Teaching and Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership National Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL).

 

In the Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise and Sport Science) (BP296), this course contributes to the development of the following Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Apply knowledge of the underlying principles and concepts of Exercise and Sport Science. Including the core areas of: Human Physiology, Anatomy, Functional Anatomy, Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics, Motor Learning and Control, Exercise Metabolism and Nutrition, and Psychology (PLO 1).
  • Communicate knowledge through a variety of modalities (PLO 4).
  • Assess exercise clients using valid and reliable methods, and generate reports in an appropriate format (PLO 5).


 

This course will contribute to your development of a range of Victorian Institute of Teaching, Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership National Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL) and Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) requirements.

 

On completion you should be able to:

 

  1. Relate a variety of factors to growth and motor development of individuals.
  2. Identify key developmental and growth factors associated with infancy, childhood and adolescence.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of factors that impact the development of motor patterns, fundamental motor skills, sport specific skills and physical activity patterns of children and adolescents.
  4. Apply a social model philosophy for the inclusion of all in physical activity.
  5. Modify your teaching to maximise participation and enjoyment of all.


Overview of Learning Activities

Lectures, tutorials, independent reading, partner and group work and practical experience are the key learning experiences in this course.

Lectures, tutorials, independent reading, partner and group work and practical experience are the key learning experiences in this course.


You will be expected to plan and modify for maximum participation and enjoyment.


Throughout the semester you will receive feedback on their learning in various forms.

You are encouraged to ask questions of lecturers and fieldwork supervisors on any aspect of the course content that may find difficult to understand. Written and/or verbal comments on submitted work is a more formal way of providing feedback on learning.

Learning resources in this course include lecture notes , practical exercises, handouts and references on selected topics. The myRMIT system provides opportunities for you to independently access much of this material. It will be to the you advantage to access and review lecture notes prior to class. These should not however be viewed as a complete set of lecture note materials


 Six (6) hours per week for one semester comprising lectures, tutorials/ online activities and practical experience.
