What's in the Course?

The Psychology of Movement is concerned with understanding the relationship between human movement and its affect on a range of psychological characteristics. The psychological characteristics examined in this course are: Social, Cognitive, Emotional and Physical. This course is focused around four key questions:

  • To what extent can movement enhance aspects of social interaction?

  • To what extent can movement change the way the people think and solve problems?

  • To what extent can movement change the way people feel?

  • To what extent can movement change our physical state?

Theory and Application

The focus of this course is on studying the psychology of movement from key academic research and theory papers, and then thinking about how this knowledge can be applied in Business, Education, Health and Social Care settings.

  • Theory

    Each session will be focused around a particular research or theory paper. Students will have read the paper prior to the session and the paper will be presented and discussed by the group. The aim of this element of the course is to foster an understanding of current theoretical and methodological approaches to the psychology of movement and of how these affect the way the knowledge base is interpreted.

  • Application

    During each session we will move from theory to application by discussing how the theoretical concepts and research findings can be applied in business, education, health and or social care settings. The aim of this element of the course is to develop a deep and systematic understanding within this specialised field of study and its interrelationship with other relevant disciplines.

Assessment

Successful completion of the course requires attendance at, and engagement with, 6 out of 8 tutorial sessions and the submission of a Movement in Practice Implementation Plan. At the end of the course students will receive a Movement in Practice Certificate of Completion.

The Movement in Practice Implementation Plan is a document which describes how you would use principles of Movement in Practice to address particular aspects of the human experience in a setting that is relevant to you. For example, you might draw up a Movement in Practice Implementation Plan to address toxic levels of low motivation in the workplace, or to encourage critical thinking in an educational setting, or to increase engagement with a well-being initiative in a health setting or to reduce feelings of isolation in a social care setting.
