The fact that the course is being delivered online suits my active life as a scholar-athlete and part-time tennis co-ordinator. It allows me to prioritise my work, and I receive a lot of support from staff if needed. It helps that I am based in Stirling, however, the directors of the modules make themselves available as much as possible via email or other online communication.
The work I do for the course is very relevant to my work on court as a tennis coach and genuinely encourages me to develop and become a better coach. Assignments vary from recorded presentations, to creating posters as well as essays, and gradually progress as the semester goes on.
Overall, you get the opportunity to learn a lot about theoretical approaches and apply them in your coaching at the same time.
