Sport, personal and social development

UVA (19)

Nutrition, looking after your body and the study of intercultural realities at national and insular levels will be featured in one of the courses on offer during the Adeje Summer University which runs from July 21st to 25th.

The course, in Spanish, “Deporte y desarrollo personal y social (sport and personal and social development)” will be taught by University of La Laguna professor Francisco Jiménez Jiménez, and looks at different ways of integrating sporting values into social settings. It will also look at techniques regarding care of the body, and nutritional needs.

The course will look at the practise of sports within family settings as well as the relationships between trainers and athletes, or between rivals. In this way special attentions will be given to the building of intercultural relationships and the existence of racism in sport and in other competitive situations, paying attention to the personal and social advancement of students, and how that applies in sporting situations, to those competing, trainers and coaches, referees and institutional heads within the field of sports education.

The course will be held in the university campus, in the Adeje cultural centre and is 20 hours in total. Students can earn two credits (CLE or ECTS). Evaluation will be based on attendance and participation in theoretical classes and conferences, using diverse audio visual media and concluding with a series of debates on issues raised.
