This unit applies movement science to the analysis and acquisition of movement skills in children through exploration of how movement skills are learned and performed. Students will examine skill acquisition and biomechanical concepts including: movement skills; theories of movement skill acquisition; instruction, practice design and feedback; assessment of movement skills; analysis of movement; the manipulation and modification of effort, time, force, and objects; and the effect forces have on bodies and motion. The unit will help students develop skills and knowledge to support the acquisition, application and evaluation of movement skills, concepts, and strategic awareness in order to support learners in responding creatively and competently in a variety of physical activity contexts and settings. Students develop theoretical understanding of implementing and evaluating approaches to skill analysis, assessment and acquisition common to movement settings. Participation in practical experiences will illustrate theoretical concepts of how to analyse, develop, and refine movement. Students will explore the acquisition and analysis of movement skills, concepts and strategies to confidently and competently participate in a range of physical activities.
