Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Absolutely everything!!! I found this course very easy to follow and understand because everything was on moodle and Mel was a HUGE help. Really am enjoying this subject. Best subject!! Course evaluations Ensure assessment items continue to remain clear and provide concise criteria for the students to address and that the Moodle site continues to operate as a 'one stop shop' for students that is easy to navigate.
Just a comment, I was really surprised to see that not 100% of the class completed the Level 1 ASCA. The level 1 course and 13003 are almost identical, and for anyone who wants to be involved in a gym environment in any form in the future I think it is very beneficial (when we cover the same work in 13003 anyway!). You may as well get the certification for it. Course evaluation The degree should align with as many external accreditation bodies as it can so that graduates not only graduate with their degree, but also with a variety of additional qualifications. Such accreditations could include ASCA Level 1 Strength and Conditioning, SMA Sports Trainer and Sports First Aider, Sports Administrator. These additional qualifications would assist our graduates in their employment opportunities. Furthermore, students could then use their 160 placement hours (ESSC13003/ESSC13004) to undertake the required hours to complete the practical assessment requirements of the above qualifications, in conjunction with their ESSA Sport Science accreditation requirements.
The lecturers enthusiasm. I look forward to watching lectures and the assessment tasks were very realistic. Mel has been the most approachable lecturer I have come across at my time at CQU, she is always happy to answer any questions about future career options or topics that do not relate to her subject area. Course evaluation Future coordinators should take a similar approach. Be passionate about what you do and the students will appreciate it.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Recognise, describe, and analyse key concepts, principles, and applications regarding exercise prescription, programming, and conditioning in low risk and athletic populations.
  2. Implement key concepts and principles of exercise prescription, programming, and conditioning in delivering and designing training programs for low risk and athletic populations.
  3. Implement execise and sport science skills and knowledge through completing practicum in workplace setttings.
