OverviewThis core unit is designed to provide the skills and knowledge necessary for effective construction and implementation of training programs for health benefits and to improve performance. Emphasis will be on the knowledge and practical understanding of different training methods and strategies and their effects on performance. Classes are driven by student derived inquiry questions which are instrumental in the understanding of these issues and processes. This unit has been designed to develop students who are prepared to function effectively in diverse educational settings with competencies that are instrumental in training school aged students, interpreting research results and accurately responding to questions relating to physical activity, training and performance. At the completion of this unit it is hoped that students are more confident and knowledgeable in this content area, understand the vital link between theory and practice and value the need for them to be research informed teachers.
