ANALYSIS OF THE CONTENT OF "BODY EXPRESSION" IN PLANS OF STUDY OF DEGREE IN SCIENCES OF THE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND SPORTS IN SPANISH UNIVERSITIES

 

ABSTRACT

 

The aim of this study is to analyze in depth the structure of the Teaching Guides (TG) of the subjects that impart the content of Corporal Expression in all the Spanish Sports Sciences bachelor degrees (SSBD). To do this, the 56 TG of the subjects related to the contents of Corporal Expression of the total of 42 SSBD, both public and private, were studied for the 2016-2017 academic year. The most relevant results show that all the SSBD analyzed had in their curricula at least one subject of Body Expression, being 7% of the total of the basic teaching load, 73% obligatory and 20% optional, although the total weight of this subject in relation to the rest of the teaching load of the SSBD can be consider minor (average of 6 ECTS credits - 2,7%). A higher prevalence of practical teaching load compared to theoretical (3,1 ± 1,2 and 2,4 ± 0.9 respectively, p < ,05) was observed. The specific contents and skills related to dance are included in 73% of analyzed subjects. The 68% of the SSBD locate this subject in 1st or 2nd year. From the study of the evaluation systems and their weighting on the final calcification, it follows that the vast majority of Spanish SSBC are committed to continuous and formative assessment in this subject through a combination of practical and written tests, as well as the written reports and projects. There were no significant differences in any of the structural and evaluation variables studied between the Spanish Public and Private Universities.
