KIN 347 - Applied Coaching Practice


★ 3 (fi 6) (either term, 3-0-0) This course examines the practice of coaching with an emphasis on a number of advanced social science concepts and theories as they apply to effective coaching. The position of the "athlete as a learner" will be central to this course to promote the idea that coaching is a complex social, psychological, and pedagogical process centered around human interaction and development, and underpinned by a number of applied sport sciences. Students should ideally have previous or ongoing coaching experience. Prerequisite: KIN 245. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 347 or PEDS 347.
