HM1061 - Foundations of Movement and Physical Activity
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Arts, Society & Education
This subject is designed to lay a foundation for the teaching of movement and physical
education in primary and secondary schools. Initially, it focuses on the development
of knowledge, attitudes, and skills that support the teaching of fundamental and specialised
movement skills core to physical activity and sport participation. Underpinning the
development of the capacity to teach fundamental and specialised movement skills is
the foundational knowledge related to the structure and function of the body and its
growth and development (biophysical bases) across the primary and secondary schooling
years. Alongside the biophysical bases of movement, the importance of access, equity
and ethics in the development and maintenance of lifelong participation in physical
activity will be investigated. Students will apply the theoretical constructs by participating
in a variety of applied activities, for example; athletics, challenge and adventure,
minor games and sports. The foundation offered by the subject will implicitly impact
upon the students' initial teaching practices.
- apply foundational human biophysical knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics
and motor learning to analyse and teach fundamental and specialised movement sequences;
- develop analytical skills and approaches to assessing the quality of movement and
- articulate the role that access, equity and ethics in teaching practice play in the
development physical literacy and support lifelong physical activity.
