About the Course

Observing and Analysing Performance in Sport is presented by OpenLearning and will use and share open access resources in five topic areas:


This introductory course connects anyone interested in developing an understanding of the observation and analysis of performance in sport.

It offers synchronous opportunities to discuss topics but it is fundamentally asynchronous in sharing, aggregating and curating resources. It is hoped that access to open resources prior to synchronous meetings will give the course some flipped characteristics.

The content of each topic is intended to be an introduction to that topic. We recommend that everyone access the Connecting and Sharing topic as the first module in the course in order to establish a framework for our activities over the subsequent four weeks. Thereafter the route taken through the remaining four modules will be a personal choice.

Course Duration

The course starts on Monday 5 November 2012 (Australian Eastern Standard Time). There are five modules in the course. In the first week, Connecting and Sharing will be the focus of discussions. Thereafter you can follow whatever topic suits you in whatever order you wish. The OpenLearning site provides a discussion forum to share and explore ideas.
