Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.
While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of high performance sport from a management perspective. In doing so, the unit examines and evaluates contemporary issues and practices relating to: 1) elite sport systems delivering world class performance; 2) the influence of sport policy on success; 3) stakeholder interactions to fund and deliver elite sport; 4 player agency and team management; and 5) athlete monitoring. Particular attention is paid to synthesising these five topics to assess and analyse the interaction between stakeholders who collaborate to deliver high performance outcomes. The unit draws on expertise from contemporary research and industry practise through guest lectures, case studies, and required readings.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify and contextualise an understanding of the unique challenges and demands of the high performance sport environment;
2. Critically evaluate the systems and processes used to deliver high performance sport;
3. Interpret and evaluate the influences management decisions can have on high performance sport systems holistically;
4. Recognise and evaluate an overview of cross organisation considerations which need to be balanced to achieve joint interests and objectives; and
5. Critically examine systematic funding requirements and distribution of funds within a sporting context.
One 1 hour lecture and one 2 hour workshop on campus per week.
