Department Approval/Permission of Instructor
The course covers laboratory applications as they relate to exercise science. Emphasis will be placed upon laboratory experiences in biomechanics and exercise physiology involving equipment setup, data collection, data acquisition, and data analysis.
A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.
This course is part of a new Plan III Program of Study in Exercise Science that has just been approved by the College of Education Graduate Program Committee and the College Council.
B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?
This course would be open to students from other colleges interested in exercise science and health. This is a new course that has not been offered in the past, but enrollment is anticipated to be approximately 15 to 20 students per class.
C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?
D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
All faculty teaching this course have completed at least 18 graduate semester hours in the teaching discipline and hold at least a masters degree.
- Other Course Information
By the end of this course, the student should have the following competencies:
6.1. Demonstrate the application of the principles of mechanics and how they impact human movement.
6.2. Demonstrate the application of basic exercise physiology principles.
6.3. Demonstrate the ability to effectively analyze selected motor and physiological patterns.
6.4. Evaluate and conduct research in biomechanics and exercise physiology.
6.5. Interpret data obtained from various testing instruments and prescribe remedial physical activity based on those results.
B. Learning Outcomes
Exam I will be given in midsemester and will encompass all of the information covered in class up to that point. The exam may include multiple choice, true/false, matching response, short and long answer formats.
Exam II will be given during finals’ week and will encompass all of the information covered in class up to that point. The exam may include multiple choice, true/false, matching response, short and long answer formats.
Students will have to complete two research projects, one each in biomechanics and exercise physiology that will allow them to familiarize themselves with research studies in these areas, collect and analyze data and interpret research results. In addition, students will present research findings to the class as a formal presentation. Evaluation will be based on the following itemized list which will be converted and total 50% of the final grade.
Students will be given periodic assignments and have adequate time to complete and present to faculty. Evaluation will be based on the following itemized list which will be converted and total 10% of the final grade.
