Human Movement - PHTY301

This unit provides students with a broad overview of motor learning and performance. The unit integrates the student’s prior study of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, neuroscience and behavioural sciences as it pertains to human movement. The aim of the unit is to provide a behavioural and physiological understanding of the acquisition and execution of skilled motor actions. The unit explores the classification of motor skills, the neuromotor processes that underpin motor performance and features of the learning environment that can be manipulated to promote motor learning in a coaching and/or rehabilitation context. Students will have the opportunity to apply their learning through a group project in which they train a healthy person to improve a motor skill.
