Students will acquire increased knowledge about a range of movement activities, enjoy participating in these for the social, emotional, cognitive and physical benefits and be able to apply the knowledge to personal and/or professional contexts. Students complete coaching accreditations through the Australian Sports Commission and apply new knowledge to present and critique physical activity and movement learning. Online students are required to commit time to attend relevant accreditation courses and coaching clinics.
Students gain knowledge relevant to movement contexts such as; the role of community organisations; socioecological barriers to physical activity; the important role of movement in cognitive, emotional, social and physical development; the importance of inclusivity, and motor learning. Students will increase their repertoire of challenge and adventure activities; rhythmic movement, games and sport and lifelong physical activities, through interactive learning experiences. They will apply a variety of relevant pedagogical strategies for a diverse range of developmental, ethnic, cultural, religious and age demographics whilst accounting for legislative requirements that ensure safe and inclusive learning environments.
