Development notes 17 Aug 2010[edit source]

  • Discussing and thinking about options to initially modelling the running of sessions on a couple of topics
  • then providing constructive tasks to build the resource (on wikiversity)
  1. annotated bibliography (min. 10 contemporary references - 8 original source for each part) covering:
    1. relevant pathophysiology,
    2. exercise contra-indications and limitations, and
    3. evidence of exercise effectiveness in prevention, treatment and/or management
  2. expansion of annotations into related points of evidence
  3. manipulation of references into a useful evidence based resource
  • and finally the enhancement of the resource into a multi-media presentation with links to further recommended readings


  • groups of 3, making 3-4 groups, covering topics
  1. hypertension
  2. dyslipidemia/hyperlipidemia
  3. End-stage renal disease


  • to cover, exemplify and model using the other topics
  • provide some information across all topics, e.g. scope of practice

Ben and Leigh

  • 12 week course of 13 hours study per week (total needs to be 150 hours - edited 10 August)
  • This breaks down to 4 hors lectures and tutorials, followed by 6 hours directed study per week
  • Ben will prepare a list of topics to be covered, and curate a <1 hour lecture, event, seminar, lab, or other to introduce that topic
  • Small groups of students will be assigned 1 topic each week to further develop into a structured text
  • The small groups use each other's topics to conduct a lab
  • An open book exam finishes he course
