2.1.Course objectives
To acquire necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills about:
- the classification and characteristics of nonconventional kinesiological activities,
- systematization and structural analysis of different contents,
- anatomical and biomechanical analysis of specific phases of movements and complete movements which are being conducted with the purpose of motor ability transformation (quantitative and qualitative changes) and general and specific motor skills changes in persons of different age, gender, capabilities and skills.
2.2.Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course
Completed Basic kinesiological transformations (1, 2) course.
2.3.Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
Within the elective module Basic kinesiological transformation students will acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills on:
- basic kinesiological and anthropological characteristics
- methodological procedures for learning and acquiring general motor skills of different programmes (pilates, yoga, aerobics...),
- methodological procedures for development and maintenance of basic and specific motor abilities with regards to the characteristics and capabilities of different age and interest group persons,
- basic selection and content, methods and load volume distribution procedures in different training programmes,
- the basics of planning and programming in accordance with: the age, gender, capabilities and skills of persons as well as the particularities of different training programmes,
- basic and specific methods and procedures for subjects status assessment and the estimation of expected final states after completing the planed transformational process,
Based on which the students will be able to critically and autonomously notice, analyze and solve the problem by adequately organizing and implementing training programme.
Students will also be enabled to acquire specific competences by attaining scientific bases for research implementation in the areas of certain segments of the course.
Basic competences: application of aforementioned knowledge and skills in the wide area of social and sports activities and in personal development.
2.4.Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)
After completed and successfully passed course students will be able to autonomously:
- plan and programme transformational programmes for different age category gymnasts in respect to their capabilities, skills and interests,
- organize and conduct different transformational programmes, with taking care of the selection and distribution of exercises, selection of adequate training method and load volume with the purpose of learning, acquiring and mastering general and specific (characteristic for different exercising programmes) motor skills and developing and maintaining motor and functional abilities;
- diagnose actual gymnasts states with the possibility of optimal estimation of expected final states.
