KINETOTHERAPY IN MOTOR SKILLS DISORDERS

 

1. Motivation

The ‚Kinetotherapy in motor skills disorders’ programme has been initiatied by the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport at Spiru Haret University, within the Cycle II of Academic Studies, in compliance with the requirements and standards established by competent authorities and closely follows the research and teaching mission specific for the master studies.

 

This programme is a follow-up to the Cycle I of studies and consolidates knowledge and prepares specialists that will match the current social requirements.

This programme targets the individuals holding a bachelor degree (major in Kinetotherapy and Special motor skills’) from the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport at Spiru Haret University or from other higher education institutions. 

 

 

The option for the ‚Kinetotherapy in motor skills disorders’ programme is mainly supported by the fact that the activity of physical education and sport reports an increasing number of the affections derived from overstressing and accidents, especially in the passive and active motor system, in all sport branches, irrespective of the age.  As a consequence, this academic programme is a special opportunity for the participants, who will acquire knowledge and skills that are specific to the kinetic approach in the recovery process of the motor disorders.

 

 

 

2. Novelty

The novelty of the programme is a teaching strategy where theory and practice mixes more efficiently.  Thus, the curriculum includes practical disciplines where students experiment physical exercises with a therapeutical role (gymnastics, routines for consolidating the stability and balance, therapeutical swimming) that help them capitalize on  and activate both their motor skills and the abilities that are particular to this study programme. 

The specific profile of the programme lies in:

-          the acquisition of the cognitive and practical fundamentals in kinetotherapy for the motor skills disorders;

-          knowledge of the research techniques and research in kinetotherapy.

 

The curriculum features an important volume of practicum activities, organized as practical training.

 

 

 

3. Training of the master students

 

The training of the master students is performed in the light of the curriculum specific to Kinetotherapy, including a didactic strategy that aims to an efficient organization and an optimum mix of the disciplines and methods of teaching –learning.  The curriculum also contains fundamental disciplines for this sector, related to this specialty and particular to the practical activities that provide wide knowledge and information. The training process is characterized by a systemic approach, interdisciplinarity and interactiveness, in compliance with the curriculum.

The process uses oral, written and electronic means for communication, supervised learning methods, focusing on the language and technologies specific to this programme.

The action method is fundamental in the curriculum, and students are encouraged to present personal and collective applications during lessons and the training sessions.

The learning resources are made available to the students by the library of the faculty and university, plus the libraries where they can purchase, at a discounted price, coursebooks printed by the Romania de Maine Foundation Publishing House.  For the purpose of consolidating their instruction, the university site hosts – in a shorter or full version – the electronic format of the courses in the curriculum.

A great opportunity for learning is România de Mâine Television and Radio, which broadcasts shows that are educational in nature and bring an extra information to the students.
