KINE 6365. ADVANCED MOTOR DEVELOPMENT. 3 Hours.
This course explores the current field of research in Motor Development applied to typical and special populations. More specifically, it discusses issues related to motor skill learning in childhood, the development of motor control, the relationship between motor competence and general health, and how lack of appropriate motor skills affect several domains of development (Developmental Coordination Disorder). To that, we use current research articles that discuss each one of these topics from different perspectives. *Doctoral students will be required to complete an additional research-related assignment. A student may not receive course credit for both KINE 5365 and KINE 6365.
