Staff Profile

John K Parker

“I played and coached professional golf extensively before moving into education, and as a lecturer I’ve enjoyed being able to contribute to sport psychology literature on areas related to golf and mental practice. I’ve also worked on a number of projects investigating how certain individual variables influence performance in sport. For example, I’ve recently completed a collaborative project for the British Milers Club, looking at the relationship between middle distance running times and an athlete’s perceptions of pain.”

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
