EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE
Credit points: 15
Students participate in interactive lectures, practical laboratory classes and a personal training program to examine the short and long term physiological changes that occur in the human body when subjected to exercise and environmental stress. Students are required to participate in physical activity and a variety of sports as an integral part of this subject. Concepts such as the energy continuum, nutrition, performance, and the benefits of active lifestyles are investigated so that students can apply such knowledge in terms of physical fitness assessment and exercise prescription as well as physical education.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes
01. Use logical arguments and apply information to describe the short and long term physiological changes in response to exercise and the environment
02. Demonstrate the ability to engage effectively in teams to critically analyse the relationship between theories underpinning exercise physiology with the practical application in the school and sports setting
03. Demonstrate the ability to identify, manage and reflect on analytical requirements to construct and test an individual training program based on achieved fitness results
