TOTAL STUDENT WORKLOAD





Students are required to attend and participate in all the formal timetabled
sessions for the unit. Students are also expected to manage their directed learning
and independent study in support of the uni
t.


Where normal timetabled sessions do not take place, additional directed learning
may be provided, and/or students are expected to undertake additional
independent learning.


PREREQUISITES AND CO
-
REQUISITES


Level 4
-

Introduction to Biomechanics
or equivalent


UNIT DESCRIPTION


This unit will introduce students to the tools used to acquire biomechanical data.
Students will investigate underpinning theory concerning the protocols used, as
well as
gain
practical awareness of related software.

S
tudents will learn to process
the resulting
data in order to make meaningful interpretation of athletes


actions.


LEARNING OUTCOMES


On successful completion of the unit, students should be able to:


Knowledge and Understanding

K1
Evaluate Newton’s

laws of motion in relation to angular motion and provide
examples of how each law relates to human movement in sport.

K2

Appraise the effects of fluids (air and water) on objects in motion.

K3

Select and apply appropriate tools in order to conduct
biomechanical analyses
.


Cognitive Skills

C1

Select appropriate tools and procedures,

and understand different types of
biomechanical analyses
.



Practical and Professional Skills

P1
Effectively interpret and use data collected from observa
tion and analys
is of
individual athletes
.


Transferable and Key Skills

T1

Work independently to research and solve problems.


AREAS OF STUDY


1.

Angular kinetics

2.

Fluid mechanics

3.

Tools for biomechanical analysis

4.

Processing biomechanical data


LEARNING AND TEACHING STRATEGY


This unit will be delivered via lectures, seminars and practical workshops. The
lecture programme will be predominantly theory
-
based and will focus on the
theoretical principles of angular motion, fluid mechanics and
biomechanical data
collection
. The seminars will be student
-
centred and encourage exploration and
discussion around a range of topics related to human performance. The practical
workshops will be delivered in the sport science Laboratory, sports hall and/or
outdoors and will enable st
udents to their skills of analysing and enhancing a
variety of clients with varying sport
-
specific needs.


ASSESSMENT STRATEGY


The unit will be assessed in two ways.



The first assessment is a Field based investigation. Students will undertake
a
biomechanical

analysis of a
n athlete’s performance
and make
recommendation
s

for performance enhancement. They will present their
findings and recommendations in presentation.



The second assessment is a written examination. The exam will consist of a
series

of short answer questions where students will use knowledge of
biomechanical theories to answer questions based on applied situations.
