Overview

This unit is designed to consolidate students’ undergraduate sport and exercise practice training and provides the opportunity to integrate and apply discipline-specific knowledge and skills that have been acquired throughout the course as they transition into a career as an exercise scientist. 

The theoretical and applied aspects of this unit include a critical reflection of the role, scope and impact of professionals who work with clients from apparently healthy populations, including high performance and recreational athletes. This is informed both by theoretical and professional knowledge from the disciplines of physiology, biomechanics, motor control, anatomy, psychology, exercise prescription, exercise interventions, ethics and career professional development.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Critically review and reflect upon the provision of services offered by sport and exercise scientists;
  2. Contextualise the role of exercise scientists and elucidate how they contribute to the development of the whole person;
  3. Explicate, using industry standard language appropriate to the context and setting, the professional learning aims, required job skills and career goals of a sport and/or exercise scientist; and
  4. Articulate the relationship between the knowledge acquired in sport and exercise studies and the application of skills in practice.
