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.
Online participation and engagement with discussions is expected and will enhance your learning experience
Required IT skills
Basic software and word-processing packages are required. The use of technologies that allow you to film a video of your presentation is also required.
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 the 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
