Learning and Teaching Strategies for Sports Therapy: Active learning
Wednesday 18th March 2015 - Article 6
Sports therapy is a branch of healthcare that utilises areas of sports medicine and sport and exercise sciences. Students study in both clinical and non-clinical settings covering a wide range of topics including anatomy and physiology; biomechanics; sports massage; clinical practice; strength and conditioning; rehabilitation. Currently, there are no peer-reviewed articles which have specifically looked at learning and teaching strategies in this field. This paper explores methods of learning and teaching from disciplines of medicine, sports medicine and sports science which may be implemented into sports therapy curriculum design.
