Topic description

This topic examines applied exercise science relevant to physical educators. Students will undertake an in-depth analysis of a sport or recreation activity using motion analysis software and critically review literature relevant to physical activity epidemiology.

Educational aims

Students will be provided with the opportunity to:

  • Examine a sport or recreational activity from a variety of exercise science perspectives (i.e. exercise physiology, biomechanics, skill analysis)
  • Explore motion analysis software and its application in physical education settings
  • Provide students with an opportunity to review current literature in an area of interest related to physical activity epidemiology
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Develop a digital portfolio of a sport or recreational activity suitable for use as secondary physical education teacher resource
  2. Use motion analysis software proficiently
  3. Critically review literature within the exercise science field

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
