HLTH SC 3201 - Exercise, Movement & Cognition

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

This course aims to introduce students to the current theory and application of knowledge in the field of motor skill learning. A theoretical framework of the motor learning will be introduced as well as the neurological basis for performance and learning of movement tasks. This will provide a basis for understanding how movement is initiated, learned and taught. Students will develop an understanding of the principles required to provide effective instruction and feedback to optimise learning of motor skills in people with varied needs and skill levels in different sporting and clinical scenarios.
