Learning outcomes

PROF. BERTUCCO'S MODULE
Course description:
This course focuses on the bases and applications of theories of motor learning. Principles and concepts related to the acquisition and relearning of motor skills are considered by examining practical applications of motor learning in sports and physical activity.
Course objectives:
• To understand the processes and theories that underpin motor learning;
• To promote critical thinking by reflecting on the strengths and limitations of motor learning research/theories;
• To assess motor function using the appropriate measurements in a sporting, health and exercise context;
• To understand how to manipulate a motor learning environment to optimize motor learning.

Assessment methods and criteria

PROF. BERTUCCO'S MODULE
Final exam will consist on a Written Test and an Oral Exam.
Written test:
- The written test will evaluate the knowledge of bases and applications of theories of motor learning.
- The written test will contain at least 20 multiple-choice questions.
- Correct answers will have a score of 1. Incorrect and missing answers will have a score of 0.

Oral Exam:
- The admission to the Oral Exam requires ≥18/30 at the Written Test.
- The only admission to the Oral Exam does not guarantee to pass the Final Exam.
- It will consist in an oral discussion aimed to evaluate:
- Insightful understanding of course theoretical concepts;
- Use of proper terminology
- Competency to translate the theoretical concepts to practical settings.
Final Score will consist in a 33-point scale, and it will be averaged with the other course's module. This module will have a weight of 25% on the Total Final Score of the course Planning and coaching of training for physical preparation.

Material study:
- Material provided by the teacher.
- Suggested scientific articles.
