APA 2314 Laboratory technique in exercise physiology and biomechanics University of Ottawa 3 Laboratories in Biomechanics Welcome to APA 2314 Laboratory techniques in exercise physiology and biomechanics! The purpose of the laboratory sessions is to train you in various measurement and analysis techniques as well as to develop your ability to critically analyze experimental results. This will be carried out using a variety of interactive learning tools such as biomechanical equipment commonly used in research, computer software programs, and demonstrations by your teaching assistants. These tools are not readily available to you outside of the lab, so it is of the utmost importance that you make effective use of your laboratory sessions. You will find a copy of the lab schedule below. Each lab session is three hours in length and all students are required to remain in the lab for the entire duration, unless work is completed and verified by your teaching assistant. Laboratory sessions are mandatory, as is participation within the sessions. Failure to attend and participate in the labs will result in an unjustified absence and a mark of zero on the associated lab assignment. The majority of learning that takes place in the lab will be self-directed . This means it will be up to you, the student, to manage your time. You will also be responsible for deciding who will carry out each role in the experiments. During the labs, you will follow protocols and evaluate the results obtained. Sometimes, you will be asked to work in small groups, as this maximizes class engagement and participation. You will also be asked to discuss your findings with the entire lab group at times. Keep in mind that co-teaching among group members is a great way to learn and retain information! The more you are actively involved in the experiments, the more you will learn from them, and the less studying you will have to do for the final exam. It’s win -win! Note: although your data may be collected in groups, all lab assignments are to be completed individually . In addition, the teaching assistants may provide guidance in the solution of questions posed in the lab manual but they will NOT give you any answers or confirm if you have found the correct answers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
