This unit will primarily use peer-reviewed journal articles to support the learning material which will be embedded within the Canvas site. As such, there are no required texts. It is recommended a generic strength and conditioning text is used to support the underpinning material. Suggestions include:
Cardinale,M., Newton,R., Nosaka,K. (2011) Strength and Conditioning: Biological Principles and Practical Applications. Oxford; Wiley-Blackwell
Gamble, P. (2009) Strength and Conditioning for Team Sports: Sport-Specific Physical Preparation for High Performance, Abingdon: Taylor & Francis.
Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning (2016), National Strength and Conditioning Association, Haff, G.G. and Triplett, N.T. (Ed.), Human Kinetics: Champaigne, IL.
Students are expected to engage in all material provided. Attendance at the live online sessions, whilst not compulsory is highly recommended to support learning.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real-time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real-time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
You will also need skills to produce a video, word process and database skills (i.e excel) to assist in completing the assignments.
