UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
Please note this unit has assessments scheduled in Week 7 which will require attendance on-campus. Details will be provided closer to the time. The laboratory activities within this unit require students to fulfil certain vaccination compliance requirements prior to attending laboratory classes. As some vaccination protocols can take up to 5 months to complete, we encourage you to prepare now. Compliance requirements include SCU Vaccination requirements in accordance with state Health policies: NSW Vaccination Against Specified Infectious Diseases; and QLD Health Vaccination Requirements. SCU has incorporated a combined NSW and QLD vaccination procedure as students may need to attend laboratory classes in both states. Full details are available at www.scu.edu.au/healthplacements.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
create individualised exercise prescriptions for healthy individuals
explain the expected physiological adaptations to specific training methods
deliver safe and effective exercise sessions to improve the fitness of healthy individuals and special populations
develop communication and rapport building skills for effective exercise prescription and delivery
