Overview

Course Description
Using mastery and inquiry-based teaching practices, students will learn how to couple motivational teaching practices with physical competence development across a mixture of individual activities and games. Event sports (track and field), mat-related and water-based activities will be combined to provide a broad range of activities to apply transferable concepts of qualitative biomechanics and physical literacy development. This course satisfies the Individual Activities and Games Applied Methods BPEC graduation requirement.

Means of Assessment

Evaluation will be carried out in accordance with Douglas College policy. The instructor will present a written course outline with specific evaluation criteria at the beginning of the semester. Evaluations include the following:


Instructional resource manual                                                               20-30%
Peer teaching                                                                                      25-35%
Sport movement analysis project (Qualitative biomechanical approach)    25-35%
Physical literacy critical reflection journal                                               10-20%
Professionalism and practical components                                              10-20%

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate pedagogical content knowledge (teaching ability) using the six components of inquiry-based learning: the ability to formulate questions, to gather and organize, to interpret and analyze, to evaluate and draw conclusions, and to communicate and reflect.
  2. Demonstrate pedagogical content knowledge (teaching ability) using the major components of Personalized Systems of Instruction: self-paced learning, mastery-based learning, content presentation, proctors, demonstration methods.
  3. Demonstrate the ability to analyze movement patterns and contextualized skills to inform teaching/coaching progression. 
  4. Apply qualitative biomechanical principles to the analysis of movement. 
  5. Apply the principles of physical literacy via reflective analysis to personal involvement in a variety of individual sports and games.
Textbook Materials

Consult the Douglas College Bookstore for the latest required textbooks and materials. A list of recommended textbooks and materials is provided on the instructor's course outline, which is available to students at the beginning of each semester. A coursepack for SPSC 1322 may be required.
