  23. Corequisites:
  24. Course Description: The course will address advanced principles of basic and applied exercise physiology. Cardiovascular and respiratory physiology and physiological responses of these systems to acute and chronic exercise will be discussed, as well as thermal stress.

  25. 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.
  26. 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.
  27. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times? No
  28. 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.
  29. Objectives: By the end of this course, the student should have the following competencies:

    6.1. Be able to explain the process of energy metabolism and substrate utilization at rest and during exercise and determine factors which may affect energy metabolism.

    6.2. Be able to explain the interrelationships between lung function, aerobic training, and exercise performance.

    6.3. Be able to describe the acute and chronic physiological changes in the neuromuscular system as a result of strength training for all ages.

    6.4. Be able to discuss physiological changes in the cardiovascular system as a result of physical activity and how these changes affect cardiac function.

    6.5. Be able to explain the impact of physical activity on the endocrine system.

    6.6. Show proficiency in using exercise science laboratory equipment.

    6.7. Understand and apply the procedures to conduct a research study in applied exercise science.

  30. Learning Outcomes: Written exams:

    There will be 2 written exams. Examination questions will be multiple choice, short answer and/or longer discussion and will cover all exercise physiology principles up to that point.

    Group research project:

    1. Students will develop an applied exercise physiology research question based on information learned in the beginning of the semester.

    2. To answer that question, students will develop a formal research plan. This should consist of the rationale for the research as well as the methodology to used.

    3. In order to conduct the study students must obtain IRB certification and IRB approval for the study.

    4. Students will develop an informed consent form and obtain written informed consent from the participants of their study.

    5. Students must test 5 participants and sue appropriate data collection and data management techniques/

    6. Data will be analyzed using the appropriate statistical analysis outlined in the research plan.

    7. Once the data have been analyzed, students will be responsible for interpretation. Culmination of the research will result in a final conclusion based on the results.

    8. The research project will be presented to the class in a professional format as well as turned in to the instructor in full written format including an abstract, introduction, methods, results and conclusions.
