Likewise, not all sport involves physical exertion – e.g. darts, snooker, etc – discuss this, what do the students think about this?
We value your feedback...• In the equivalent module appraisal last year students gave a low score when asked if the theory studied had prepared them for practice.• This has led the route team to enhance the structure and content of the module to improve the application of learning in practical settings. Tell me what you think as the module progresses
We value your feedback... • Other feedback received has led to this module and its content undergoing a review and redesign to ensure improvements can be made this year. Tell me what you think as the module progresses
Learning OutcomesOn completion of this module you will be able to1. Contextualise the multidimensional model of health, evaluate the health-related impact of sport and physical activity and evaluate the differences between sport and physical activitys impact on health2. Evaluate the impact of real and perceived barriers to lifelong physical activity3. Interpret and appraise the various opportunities available to undertake health benefiting activity4. Evaluate the future role of sport and physical activity in improving health
Module Structure• The aim of this option module is to examine the role of sport and physical activity in the achievement of health. This module has been designed to explore the concepts of health and well-being, of sport & physical activity, and the relationships between them.
• The delivery of the module is structured in three phases.• The first phase, in weeks 9-14, will see you utilising the Five Ways to Well-being, as identified by the New Economics Foundation (NEF) in 2008, as a framework to develop a method of promoting physical activity and improving well-being.
• In weeks 17-22 you will further develop your underpinning knowledge relating to the Five Ways to Well-being and evaluate the evidence base within this. The role of sport and physical activity will also be examined.• Weeks 23-28 will see you develop the learning from the first two phases into an effective way to engage individuals effectively in improving their health through sport and physical activity.

Feedback…• Formative feedback on work will depend on your attendance at sessions.• Your work will be moderated across the route team and you will be given written feedback within three working weeks of each assessment point and this will include information on graduate skills where necessary.
Friendly bit of advice…• Please be aware that if you do not complete or pass this module you will be required to undertake a referral/deferral task during the University referral period in August.
• “…When mentioning sport, the description established by the Council of Europe Sports Charter (1993) is „all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental wellbeing, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels‟…” Sport England (2004: 2)
Is sport good for us?There are…“…few ideas which are widely anduncritically accepted” as the relationshipbetween sport & health and the generalconsensus that „sport is good for you‟ Waddington, (2000) in Coakley & Dunning, (2000: 408)
Furthermore…• ... most sociological definitions of sport include recognition of physical exertion as an essential component, however not all physical exercise involves sport.
Is sport good for you?“Sport embraces much more than traditional teamgames and competition...” Sport England (2004: 2)“…means the 105 sports or activities which arecurrently recognised by Sport England.” Sport England (2007: 12)
What is sport?• In small groups – – Discuss what you consider sport is? – What are the key characteristics you can identify?
Coakley (2006)• "Sports are institutionalized competitive activities that involve rigorous physical exertion or the use of relatively complex physical skills by participants motivated by internal and external rewards." p. 6
Remember, however…• …according to Waddington, (2000) in Coakley & Dunning, (2000), most sociological definitions of sport include recognition of physical exertion as an essential component, however not all physical exercise involves sport.
England, the sporting nation• “benefits of sport are well rehearsed - national identity and prestige, community development, personal challenge, as well as economic and health benefits. Sport is a central element in the English way of life.” p. 3
So, is sport good for you? “few ideas which are widely and uncritically accepted” as the relationship between sport & health and the general consensus that „sport is good for you‟ Waddington, (2000) in Coakley & Dunning, (2000: 408)
Physical Activity• Physical activity: any force exerted by skeletal muscle that results in energy expenditure above resting level• Exercise: a subset of physical activity, which is volitional, planned, structured, repetitive and aimed at improvement or maintenance of any aspect of fitness or health
Costs and Benefits… Source: World Health Organization [WHO] (2003: 3)
“Lack of activitydestroys the good condition of everyhuman being while movement andmethodical physical exercise save andpreserve it.” Plato
And so, “Health”A broad concept…Huge range of meanings…Hael – Whole
What is Health?“not merely an absence of disease, but astate of complete physical, mental, spiritualand social well-being”World Health Organisation, (1974) in Haralambos & Holborn, (2004: 292)
What about Well-being?• According to the New Economics Foundation, well-being is a concept made up of two elements –• feeling goodand• functioning well
Questions?• Does sport increase health and well-being of participants & decrease sedentary lifestyles?• Does sport turn the majority of the population on to being physically active?• What role does sport promotion have on physical activity participation?
You are…• …Physical Activity Development Officers who have been given the challenge of utilising the Five Ways to Well-being to improve participation. Part of this task has been sponsored by a local camera club, who have stated that you must use photography as a means of improving well-being.
In groups of 3 or 4,• you must create a report which, by using a mix of visual images and concise text, illustrates ways to engage inactive participants in the Five Ways to Well-being.• This task will be developed during weeks 9- 13 with specific content delivered and specific activities set to build towards the online submission date.

“Connect”The New Economics Foundation (nef)http://www.neweconomics.org/projects/five-ways-well-being
“Connect”• In 2008, nef was commissioned by the UK Government‟s Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Well-being to review the inter- disciplinary work of over 400 scientists from across the world.• The aim was to identify a set of evidence- based actions to improve well-being, which individuals would be encouraged to build into their daily lives.
The Five Ways to Well-being• Connect• Be Active• Take Notice• Keep Learning• Give
“Connect”• “With the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.” Aked et al. (2008: 5)
1. What does “Connect” mean to you?2. How will you use sport, physical activity & exercise to “Connect”??3. What is the key message you would want to emphasise regarding “Connect”?4. What image would capture “Connect”?
And now…• …the next steps.• For next week – Identify the members of your group Consider how you will start to collect the images that you will need Go out and “Connect”…
And now…• …by 4.30PM TODAY.• Sent an e-mail to me answering the four question posed in the earlier slide.
