Description

This subject requires students to undertake two preparatory coursework days, followed by two, six-week blocks which are held during semester in timetabled practical shifts and workshops. The first six-week block takes place in the UTS Telepractice Clinic on campus at Moore Park and consists of weekly timetabled five-hour practical shifts. The second six-week block takes place as weekly timetabled five-hour Project Based Learning (PBL) workshops either on campus at Moore Park, or at a designated off campus site. In total, these learning experiences provides students with 60 practical hours in assessment, prescription and delivery.

These block experiences align with the Exercise Science Practicum Guidelines specified by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). Each experience has been designed to enable students to integrate knowledge with practice, develop and refine practical skills, and create new knowledge derived from reflections on experiences. Block experiences focus on enabling students to attain competency in exercise assessment, prescription and delivery through a range of activities, in a range of contexts, and across a range of relevant, apparently healthy populations. Students also apply their sport and exercise science knowledge in activities across areas that reflect the ESSA Exercise Science Standards.

Throughout this subject, formative assessment is consistently undertaken to facilitate professional growth and the development of refined practical skills, specifically within the ESSA Accredited Exercise Scientist (AES) Scope of Practice. Students maintain a detailed logbook of all subject activities, complete several Records of Student Engagement, and develop their professional identity through supervised learning experiences.
