Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To progress the student's knowledge, understanding and application of advanced instruments and methods for the assessment of motor skills.

Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
* demonstrate an understanding of movement and coordination variability, its interpretation, and the role it plays in the assessment of movement and motor skills;
* demonstrate a critical awareness of both conventional and more advanced techniques to address the analysis of task execution and task outcome, and to capture motor and coordinative skills;
* critically analyse, synthesise and discuss scientific literature on movement and coordination variability;
* systematically and creatively apply biomechanical techniques to assess movement and coordination variability;
* analyse, discuss and critically interpret laboratory results;
* write a brief scientific communication ready to be submitted to a relevant international conference.
