  • T6 Generate resources for adapting to new situations and solving problems, and for autonomous learning and creativity


The subject tries to define and contextualize conceptually the different levels of structuring of the sport practice. The structure and components of physical exercise and, more specifically, of sport will be analyzed.

A systematic analysis based on the taxonomies of existing motor actions will be presented, as elementary elements of sports tactics and their relationships with technique and the concept of strategy. Subsequently, students will be offered a model of analysis of physical exercise and, more specifically, of sport that will help them to understand the internal logic of any motor manifestation, under the conceptual "umbrella" of sport. .

The subject integrates the gender perspective.

This subject has methodological and digital resources to make possible its continuity in non-contact mode in the case of being necessary for reasons related to the Covid-19. In this way, the achievement of the same knowledge and skills that are specified in this teaching plan will be ensured.

Learning outcomes

- Schedule the exercise given its nature and its didactic aspects to obtain the effects pursued effectively and safely.

- Execute procedures effectively in the field of fitness assessment, as a preliminary step to the identification of profiles for the personalized administration of exercises in all areas of vocational education, considering the individual characteristics and contextual (gender, age, disability).

Working methodology

The methodology of the subject will be carried out combining face-to-face classroom time, with autonomous work time, with the support of the virtual learning environment. The percentage of time the student spends is distributed as follows:




Face-to-face sessions in the classroom (theory presentation, seminars, personalized tutorials)

Theoretical presentations with audiovisual support, simulations, role-playing games, group work, practical application to theory, problem-based learning (ABP), presentations by students.



Personal study, problem solving, information searches (bibliography, webography), guided works (questionnaires, wikis, debates, forums ...) reproduction of models, video capsules, problem solving.













Both in the face-to-face sessions and in the autonomous work, the student will work individually and in work groups.

Each ECTS is equivalent to 25 hours of student dedication, considering the time invested in the total of the activities related to the face-to-face time and the time of autonomous work, that the professor of the subject guides, as well as the reading time, information search, connection to the Virtual Classroom, elaboration of works.

Learning activities

The activities of the subject follow the system of continuous evaluation, that is to say, that throughout the term the professor raises several activities, that the students must solve and deliver. The work of each one of the activities allows to value to the student, the follow-up that does of the asignatura and the elements of improvement, from the comments and notes that the professor will do of the activities.

The proposed activities can be individual or in work groups. The teacher gives the instructions so that the students can elaborate and deliver them. All the activities proposed are designed so that students have a practical perspective on the topics that are developed throughout the ten weeks of the term.

Evaluation system

The qualification system (Royal Decree 1125/2003, of 5 September, establishing the European credit system and the qualification system for university degrees of an official nature and valid throughout the state):

0 - 4,9: Suspension (SS)
