Lesson Learning Outcomes
At the end of this session you should be able to:

Identify the planning process
Research Project
Why do it?
How do we do it?
What is it?
What is it?
Research allows you to pursue interests, learn something new and challenge yourself in new ways.

Every field of study has its own problems and methods.

Can you think of how sport has developed in recent years due to research?
Every single day we speculate about the world we live in.
"Britain will do really well at the Olympic Games in a few months time."

"Drinking Powerade before a Hockey match makes me perform better."

"In order to fully concentrate I need absolute silence."

"I think you will laugh at the following clip..."
Why do it?
What we do as scientists is to try and find answers to these speculations.
How do we do it?
We make a hypothesis or claim about a topic and test it.

Hypothesis: “A prediction or testable statement…tested to see if it is supported or not.”
As Sports Scientists we will seek
to do this in a more systematic way,
by collect through collecting
quantitative or qualitative data.
An Example Test
Title:
The Effect Of Noise On A Concentration Based Task.

Hypothesis:
This study will show that students are able to concentrate better in a silent environment.
Qualitative vs Quantitative
Emphasises the meaning
attached to experiences.
Did you feel you concentrated
better with or without the music
any why?
Statistically did the group
perform better with or without the distraction?
Involves measuring a variable
using some numerical basis.
Planning A Research Project
Thinking of a good idea takes time.
Have a number of topics and options before narrowing down.
Your idea needs to be practical and relatively easy to test.
You need to think about time, resources, equipment and people you require/have available.
It needs to be of importance so that your conclusions have an implication.
It needs to be interesting for you and your audience.
Workshop 1
Think of a sport or type of exercise you know lots about or have an interest in.
Think of a discipline or skill within that sport/exercise.
Think of a hypothesis (An idea you wish to test).
Have 2/3 ideas, pick one then discuss in groups.
Summary & Next Week
Introductions.
Understanding the requirements of this unit.
Why we research and how we do it.
Introduction to Planning.
Next lesson:
Planning phase - make sure you come with a clear idea of what you want to do!

Equipment examples?
Stadiums?
Tracks?
Footwear?
Racing cars?
Protective wear?
Swimwear?
What has changed due to
research in sport?
Research allows you to pursue interests, learn something new and challenge yourself in new ways.

Every field of study has its own problems and methods.
