Theoretical Foundations of Coaching and Teaching

15 points
16 Jul 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

Description

This course introduces students to the philosophical assumptions, learning theory and theories of communication that underpin coaching practice. Understanding the philosophical assumptions, theories of human learning and of communication that coaching sits upon provides important foundational knowledge that coaches can draw upon to make important decisions about coaching at any level. The course includes participating in practical sessions across a range of sports that students will reflect upon and draw upon relevant literature to develop into well informed, inquisitive and reflective coaches.

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this course students will be able to:
1. Outline the philosophical assumptions about knowledge and views of the world that underpin particular approaches to coaching.
2. Be able to engage in self-reflection upon the nature of knowledge and what it means to know in sport.
3. Compare and contrast traditional and contemporary approaches to coaching and identify the major theories of learning that inform them.
4. Effectively compare and contrast traditional, behaviourist approaches to coaching with contemporary developments in coaching.
5. Compare and contrast different approaches to coaching and discuss their theoretical underpinnings.
6. Demonstrate an understanding of indigenous models of knowledge, learning and behaviour in sport.

Attendance

Due to the carefully planned learning progressions within courses and the workshop type nature of most on-campus classes, all on-campus students are expected to attend all sessions. Distance students should watch recorded sessions, and interact with other material provided by their lecturer shortly after it is made available through LEARN or other methods. This will ensure that you do not miss vital information which will allow you to make sense of the course content. If you are going to miss on-campus classes you are expected to email the course lecturer, catch up on missed work through classmates, view recordings,  readings and other supplementary material provided.  In special cases, the course lecturer may provide additional support for you.

Evaluation

Students will be asked to complete course evaluations, and will have the opportunity to provide feedback during their courses. Surveys are conducted electronically and are confidential. The College of Education, Health and Human Development will conduct regular graduate surveys.

Grade moderation

All course assessments in the Bachelor of Sport Coaching are internally moderated.  A sample of your work may be used as part of this moderation process. Regular examiners meetings monitor the distribution of final grades in courses and adjustments are made if necessary to ensure reasonable consistency and comparability of course grades.

Late submission of work

An assessment is late if it is handed in after the due date, without a formal extension.  If an assessment is submitted after the due date, 5% will be deducted from the final grade for every day the assessment is late.  No assessments will be accepted after a period of 3 days after the due date, unless an extension has been granted.
