|Prerequisites for Module|
Successful completion of Stage 1 of the BSc (Hons) Applied Sport and Exercise Science course, or equivalent.
Aims of Module
The aim of this module is to develop students' ability to analyse human movement through needs identification, robust data collection and methods of evaluation.
Learning Outcomes for Module
On completion of this module, students are expected to be able to:
||Identify mechanical characteristics associated with successful execution of a movement task.|
||Collect and interpret quantitative data associated with a movement task. |
||Collect and interpret qualitative information associated with a movement task. |
||Conduct an analysis of a movement task and relate to normative data or mechanical principles. |
Indicative Module Content
Human movement studies; methodologies and systems of measurement; movement patterns; qualitative analysis of sporting movements; quantitative analysis of sporting movements; Quintic biomechanics software; model templates, deterministic models, critical features, angle-angle diagrams, dynamic systems theory.
|Indicative Student Workload|
Mode of Delivery
Lectures supported by tutorials, workshops and practical sessions in the laboratory.
