General Course Activities/How to Plan Your Time

Work is organized into 1 module per week

Quizzes are due by Tuesday of each week. Weekly discussions take place on Wednesday and Thursday of each week.

All activities can be completed before the assigned date/time to accommodate your work/life schedule.
Assignments that occur weekly or throughout the semester include:
  • Independent weekly research of topics related to various areas of Exercise Physiology
  • Weekly discussions within group
  • Case Studies (3 for semester)
  • Lab report (completed in groups)
Most students dedicate 10-15 hours/week to the course. We recommend planning several 1- 2 hour study blocks throughout the week and checking into the course daily once the discussions begin.
