The aims of this module are to develop in the student;
1) An application of key psycho-social aspects surrounding the community use of sport.
2) The ability to apply and evaluate a range of psych-social aspects currently influencing the use of sport by socially excluded groups (SEGs).
The syllabus will be based on the exploration of relevant practical scenarios and the attachment of current theory. Each scenario will be approached from different conceptual directions and the student will be encouraged to develop a critical approach based on their own areas of interest.
1) Definitions and processes of achievement and development. The role of sport as an agency for the development of the individual.
2) The use of Psycho-social theories for understanding Socially Excluded Groups. How sport can be used to create social change.
3) Psycho-social aspects influencing exercise adherence.
4) The influence of gender, race, age and lifestyle differences.
The learning outcomes of this module are characterised as the applied investigation and development of knowledge and understanding. The theoretical elements will be explored in class based workshops, lectures, seminars and tutorials.
There will be a considerable element of action based learning as students will be required to involve themselves with an appropriate project where they will investigate, practice and report on community issues.
The formal contact hours will be made up of the following;
Workshops, Lectures, Seminars, Presentations 12 * 1hour. Tutorials 4 *1 hour.
An additional 134 hours will be spent on independent study related to working practices
