OVERVIEW

This course teaches students the theoretical basis of motor activity and offers ideas for methodology and teaching methods which can be useful for a first oritentation in the diverse fields of professional intervention. General problems will be presented alternating theoretical moments to practical exercises, in order to be of reference for future courses during the course of study.

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Acquisition of basic skills related to the methods and techniques of motor activity. Understanding of physiological and biomechanical processes at the base of the motor skill learning facilities. Knowledge of the principles of skilled human performance.
