Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Practical classes are organized into families of activities proposed for a 1h15 period per week throughout the academic year. Units for first bachelor students relate to athletics, gymnastics, aquatics, ball games, expression. An unit is also devoted to the acquisition of basic pedagogy (physical educator training). Throughout the practice sessions, assistants and instructors ensure varied teaching methods to give students a more diverse experiences.

Any changes is communicated to students' delegates (e-mail, telephone contact), and by posting a message left on myULiège. Students are therefore advised to read the notice to the billboard (Building B21) for each day before practices. Students are also strongly recommended them to consult their ULiège-mail regularly (if they use a different email address, it would be necessary that they implement an automatic relay for academics messages to this address).

Recommended or required readings

They are few written material. When it is the case, a copy is posted on myULg.

Written work / report

Continuous assessment

Out-of-session test(s)

Additional information:

The score for this course covers all practical activities planned during the two semesters. It is the result of a calculation based on the scores obtained in the different families of activities. The arithmetic mean is modulated according to the potential weaknesses or a possible bonus linked to the practice of high level sport and taking into account the rate of active attendance.

In each family activity, the assessment is based on the quality of services provided throughout the year on the involvement of the student as well as the results achieved during the evaluation sessions scheduled according to a planning contained in the courses. The specific evaluation criteria for each category of activity are provided orally by the assistants. Students may request additional information at any time. Similarly, teachers can organize oral or written questions, unscheduled, and on the content taught in previous sessions. The results of these evaluations may be included in the assessment of a sports family.

Even supported by a medical certificate, a "non-participation" in the assessment tests entail an extension of these to the next session. In exceptional circumstances, an alternative test can be arranged.

Further information is available in the tender documents.

Prerequisites for future BAC1 students in Sport Sciences
This document was designed to facilitate the transition of future students in Motor Sciences at the University of Liège. As part of the course "Practice of physical education and sports I", 6 families of distinct disciplines are taught throughout the academic year in the 1st bachelor. In addition, the course "Introduction to physical training Partim II" also includes a practical component. In order to best prepare you for these activities, the course holders have prepared a list of prerequisites that they recommend that you master before entering the University of Liège. These recommendations will help you approach each of the proposed activities with confidence. If you have deficiencies in one or more of the under-mentioned skills, we encourage you to make up for it not only by exhibiting a dynamic and diligent attitude during the course but also by training yourself in addition to the compulsory activities. The RCAE notably offers activities on the University of Liège website in each of these families of activities (http://www.rcae.ulg.ac.be/). However, these prerequisites are not restrictive when you enter block 1 of the bachelor's degree in Sport Sciences. All of the content will be taken from the base in order to ensure that everyone has a complete learning experience adapted to the objectives of the training.

Good preparation, see you very soon at the University of Liège!
