The course teaches the students to explain basic physiological aspects as preconditions for movement, function, physical activity and training. The course includes lectures and classroom instruction.
Previously, teachers spent much time in class describing and explaining basic physiological concepts. This resulted in a low taxonomic level in lectures. To increase the taxonomic level in class it was necessary to review the specialised subject matter before the lecture. This resulted in an increasing desire to design technology-supported out-of-class activities to improve the students’ preconditions for learning.
The videos increase the students’ understanding of difficult or key issues within physiology. The out-of-class activity helps prepare the students for class, which increases their possibility to follow the class teaching.
