Sports of current interest
Choice between specialization within the categories individual or team sports.
The number of offered specializations depends on the number of students. At least two specializations within each category will be given.
Activity theory will serve as both a basis and as a specific arena for the more theoretical subjects in the study programme.
The course will be under continuous assessment and development, and activities offered may be subject to change.
Instruction will be given as lectures, practical work and projects. The course assumes a great deal of self study.
Compulsory attendance requirements in practical sports (a minimum of 80% attendance).
Estimated student workload is about 270 hours.
Approved participation in practical sports and activities.
Assessment methods and criteria
A graded two-week written assignment in sports analysis (report) in groups.
The study programme manager, in consultation with the student representative, decides the method of evaluation and whether the courses will have a midterm- or end of term evaluation, see also the Quality System, section 4.1. Information about evaluation method for the course will be posted on Canvas.
