Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

As a result of the Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. 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. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.

Syllabus

This unit is designed to introduce the field of Biomechanics to students. During the first half of the semester the unit content centres primarily on mechanical theory, focussing on how these concepts can be applied to the human body. In the second half of the semester the subject content focuses analysis of human movement including, walking, running and swimming.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit, students will:

1. Have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the mechanical factors that influence human movement;

2. Have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the biomechanics of the human musculoskeletal system with particular emphasis on joint function; and

3. Be able to conduct a qualitative biomechanical analysis and be able to supply meaningful feedback concerning technique modification.
