Methods of instruction may include some or all of the following:
- Case studies
- Problem based learning
- Online videos
- Online readings
- Group projects
Evaluation will be carried out in accordance with the Douglas College Evaluation Policy. The instructor will present a written course outline with specific evaluation criteria at the beginning of the semester. Evaluation will be based on the following:
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Describe how physiological systems (e.g. metabolic, cardiovascular, respiratory, neuromuscular) are controlled and how they respond to the effects of acute and chronic exercise and environmental stress.
- Explain how physiological systems (e.g. metabolic, cardiovascular, respiratory and neuromuscular) work in an integrative manner to maintain homeostasis during exercise and environmental stress.
- Perform physiological measurements commonly used in an exercise physiology laboratory setting.
- Analyze exercise physiology data.
- Apply exercise physiology related concepts through applied problem solving.
- Communicate exercise physiology related concepts using appropriate communication skills necessary for scientific inquiry.
Consult the Douglas College Bookstore for the latest required textbooks and materials. Example textbooks and materials may include:
Sharon A. Plowman and Denise L. Smith. Exercise Physiology For Health, Fitness and Performance, 5thEd.
Course Guidelines for previous years are viewable by selecting the version desired. If you took this course and do not see a listing for the starting semester / year of the course, consider the previous version as the applicable version.
