PSYC 3480 University of Guelph Unit 1 Psychology in Sports Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need support to help me study.

Note: In this unit, there are five potential discussion themes available for your consideration. You should select three different discussion themes and submit one initial post that begins a discussion thread and two responses to your group members’ posts in the appropriate discussions area. If you are the first person to submit a post, do not forget to indicate the title of the theme (e.g. The Psychology in Sport Discussion). Moreover, do not worry to be the initiator of a discussion; other students who are interested in the theme(s) will join you soon to keep the discussions running. ( choose one from five topics)

  1. The Psychology in Sport Discussion: The Psychology in Sport video gives a good overview of what this field entails along with information covered in this unit. Some coaches and athletes are not supporters of this academic field and its application to competitive sport. As an individual, what are your initial feelings or biases toward sport psychology? What do you want to get out of this course?
  2. Theories of Sport Psychology Discussion: A number of scientific methods are available to investigate theories and issues of sport psychology and exercise. Which methods or combination of methods would work best to study a theoretical approach or sport issue of your choice?
  3. Cheating in Sport Discussion: As demonstrated in the Top 10 Worst Cheaters in Sports and the Technology in Sport – Is it cheating? Videos on cheating and through the written class materials, it is clear that some athletes and officials cheat, and confuse gamesmanship with sportsmanship in the pursuit of ‘winning’. What are your thoughts about cheating in sports?
  4. Sport Psychologist Discussion: In order to ensure quality and consistency of academic training some people feel that all sport psychologists must be accredited/licenced and a registered psychologist. Others argue that accreditation/licencing discriminates against individuals who could be excellent advisors based on their experience and interests, and should be allowed to be called sport psychologists. Where do you stand on this issue?
  5. Positive Psychology Discussion: With reference to the relevant literature, what do you think positive psychology can contribute to sport and exercise?

Discussion Posts

Across the course units (01-05 and 07-10), there are discussion activities that require your active, weekly participation in group discussions. Students will be placed in small groups to promote collaborative learning. Select Groups from the Tools dropdown menu to view your group.

The purpose of the discussion is to build on the knowledge gained from the required reading and CourseLink unit modules to critically reflect on themes related to each unit in the course.

With the exception of Unit 06, each unit includes five potential discussion themes for consideration. Students are required to select three different discussion themes (out of the five potential choices) and post one 150-250 word paragraph for each unit theme selected. A total of three posts should be submitted for each unit and must be related to different unit themes. To encourage idea sharing and interaction, students are expected to submit one initial post that begins a discussion thread by Wednesday and also complete two responses to group members’ posts by end of the week (Sunday).

Only one initial post and two responses (each related to a different unit theme) will be graded.

The due dates for unit discussion posts are listed in the Schedule (see above). All three posts for the unit must be submitted to the group discussion by the due date. Late discussion posts will not be graded.

Important Note: Review the Late Policy under Course Specific Standard Statements in this Outline.

Discussion posts will be evaluated throughout the term. Unit posts will be graded on the basis of knowledge/critical thinking, clarity of communication, quality/conciseness of writing, accuracy/relevance of academic content, and timeliness/frequency of posts.
