PRESENTATION:

This course, taken during the first semester of Year 4, is part of the itinerary of Mención en Educación Física (módulo 14).

Learning and Psychomotor Development is closely related to Psicomotricidad, Juego y Aprendizaje a subject taken in Year 3 (Infant Education degree’s students). Inherent to the evolutionary development of the child, movement acquires a significant importance as a facilitator of integrating and comprehensive learning.

Along this course, gaps between learning and psychomotor development are bridged by analysing specific teaching proposals as well as supportive tools and methods.

Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to:

PRE-REQUISITES:

Given that Learning and Psychomotor Development is closely related to Psicomotricidad, Juego y Aprendizaje, subject taken in Year 1, it is desirable that students taking part in this course have successfully completed that subject, but this is not a MUST.

It is highly recommended that this course be taken in conjunction with the other courses within Mención Educación Física since several tasks are applicable to all these courses of this Mención.

This course is taught exclusively in English, therefore, in order to be able to follow the course properly, students should have preferably acquired a level of language proficiency in English of B2 within de CEFR, but not less than B1. If students do not meet the language requirements, they should consider enrolling in an English language course (https:/ / www.usj.es/ es/ be-international/ ilm/ formacion/ ingles).

In the event of attendance of Erasmus students, a B1 level of language proficiency in Spanish is desirable in order to follow properly Spanish content -workshops, seminars, readings,...

TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGIES AND ACTIVITIES:

Teaching and learning methodologies and activities applied:

During this course a variety of teaching methods will be used including lectures, class discussions, role plays, simulations, small group work, and independent study. Furthermore, activities based on experiential learning methodology will be used.

An important requirement is to participate actively in class discussions and in your small groups, as well as on the practical activities. Your contribution is important and through your active participation we can all learn further from each another and about the topics analysed. It is through practice and experience we learn how to communicate in class and how to effectively manage a classroom.

One of the main requirements of this course is to complete the assigned readings for the week in order to comment and analyse them further in class. This will greatly enhance class discussion.

This course is based on constructivism, therefore, active engagement in class and participation is key.

Plagiarism is an illegal and unethical activity. A zero tolerance policy will be in operation. Plagiarism is the intentional or unintentional representation of someone else’s work as your own. Everything you write should be yours or properly quoted by using APA quotation system.

Scheduled activities:

Master class. Explanation of theoretical content and concepts of the subject.

Co-operative group work

Group dynamics and methods based on experiential learning. Simulation of natural environments and real professional practice situations.

Discussions and opinions exchange based upon class content.

Analysis and problem-solving of practical cases raised by the lecturer.

Analysis of real cases (problem-based learning - PBL).

Independent study activities:

Research on subject-specific topics.

Both Spanish and English close-readings in relation to the subject.

Wide consultation and study of digital and audio-visual material.

Individual and group work preparation.

Development of own material.

Self-study and preparation of the subject.
