Training objectives

------------------------------------------------------------
Modulo: 018193 - BIOLOGIA DELL'ETA' EVOLUTIVA E DELL'INVECCHIAMENTO
------------------------------------------------------------
BIOLOGY OF DEVELOPMENT AND AGEING
This advanced course aims to provide students with information on the current understanding of human biology (anthropometric and functional aspects) during growth, development and ageing. In addition, we propose exercises to learn the practical application of anthropometric and functional analyses during development and ageing.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AT DIFFERENT AGES
The course aims to develop competences in planning, conduction and management of the physical activity in children, adults and seniors and to increase the experience in the didactic organization. The practical part of the course supplies specific information to face with competence programming and development of physical activity sessions in children, adults and seniors.

------------------------------------------------------------
BIOLOGY OF DEVELOPMENT AND AGEING
Methods employed in growth studies: cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. Curves of growth. Standards of normal growth. Assessment of the biological age.
Growth during puberty: changes in anthropometric features and motility. Somatotype in growing.
Heredity-environment interaction on the control of growth and development.
Anthropometric assessment of the nutritional status in the child: undernutrition, overweight and obesity.
Influence of physical activity on growth, physical and motoric development. Characteristics of the young athlete. Exercises on the topics of the traditional lessons.
HUMAN AGEING
Changes in anthropometric and functional characteristics during the aging process.
Heredity-environment interaction on the aging process.
Assessment of the biological age.
Anthropometric assessment of the nutritional status in elderly age. Age-related changes in ageing: the influence of physical activity.
Characteristics of the old athlete. Exercises on the topics of the traditional lessons.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IN DIFFERENT AGES
Improve knowledge of:
Physical activity and promotion of the health.
Physiological modifications of the energetic metabolism during the life.
Modifications of the muscle-skeletal apparatus, of the cardiovascular apparatus, of the respiratory apparatus and of the Central Nervous System.
Programming of physical activity differentiated by subject.

Didactic methods

Learning assessment procedures

The final mark will be the average of the results obtained in each written and practical tests and the end-course test. The end-course test will be a written test with multiple-choice answers concerning lessons and exercises of BIOLOGY OF DEVELOPMENT AND AGEING and the lessons of PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IN DIFFERENT AGES.
