Where do you need to be and when?

Module Leader: Dr Katie Dray

How are we going to evaluate? This module will be assessed by a portfolio for which you will receive a grade. You can more details about this in the assessment section. We will also offer lots of formative assessment (i.e. you get to practice your skills for the final assessment)

Useful resources You will find all kinds of resources for each topic on the blackboard site, but if you want to get a head start; here some good textbooks to explore: Armour, K. (2011) Sport Pedagogy: An Introduction for Teaching and Coaching. London: Routledge. Pill, S., SueSee, B., Rankin, J., & Hewitt, M. (2021). The Spectrum of Sport Coaching Styles (1st ed.). Routledge. https://doi.org/10.4324/9781003041443

What are we going to need You should come dressed appropriately for practical sessions, ideally in your Course Kit. It will also be helpful (but not essential) to have device (laptop, tablet, phone) to help you complete the online tasks and anything else you need to take notes.
