Description
This hands-on workshop will expand your understanding of the Biomechanical and Skill Acquisition Principles discussed in VCE PE Unit 3 AOS 1, using a range of equipment and technologies in the laboratory to demonstrate these concepts in action. Activities in this session will provide you with an improved knowledge and activity bank, enabling you to view skill performance and the concepts in Unit 3 PE Area of Study 1, using a more holistic lens by integrating smaller concepts to explain movement. Finally, there will be an opportunity to ask questions relating to content and SAC preparation. (repeated in B2)
