This course provides both an introduction and advanced understanding of the nature of motor control and learning. It outlines the theoretical basis of motor control and learning to be able to select and perform assessments of motor skills. The course will develop knowledge and skills relevant to the design of suitable programs, based on best practice, for teaching motor skills to meet the needs of clients. The course will not only provide information relevant to a general healthy population, especially those involved in sport and physical activity, but to individuals and groups across a range of populations. The use of motor control and learning in the development of motor skills and in rehabilitation will be a focus. Additional advanced focus of motor learning in clinical populations and locomotion will be introduced. Current research and the relationship to other discipline areas will be outlined.
This course contains a mandatory residential school at the Ipswich campus for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
