Event description

Description

NUTR3000 Nutrition and Exercise is a lecture-only course which regularly has ~400 students enrolled. The course focuses on the biochemical and physiological foundations underpinning the relationship between nutrition and exercise performance, and how diet and physical activity impact on health.

In the first half of the course, the influence of macro and micro nutrients on athletic performance will be closely examined. In the second half of the course, the influence of exercise and nutrition on the development, prevention and management of diseases such as obesity, type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease will be addressed. Students will develop independence, creativity and critical thought in the evaluation of research relating nutrition and exercise to health and exercise performance.

Associate Professor David Jenkins is a Level D Exercise Physiologist who has worked at UQ for 26 years. He has been awarded an ALTC Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning for 'sustained excellence in teaching exercise science to large undergraduate classes with a focus on social and professional engagement'. David has been the principal advisor to 20 graduated RHD students. He has published 150 papers and has an H-index of 34 (Web of Science).

David's teaching style enables him to connect with his students, even when there are around 400 in the class. He uses humour and anecdotes to communicate contemporary knowledge of both exercise and nutrition for fitness and health to his students.

These are old school 'chalk and talk' lectures done particularly well.
