COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:
This course is intended to prepare the student for working with a sports team as a student trainer. In addition, many students taking BPK 241 are intending to continue on into a therapy related field following completion of their undergrad. BPK 241 is a primer for this intended career path.
- Lecture Midterm 25%
- Lecture Final 40%
- Lab Midterm (Ankle Tape Job) 10%
- Lab Final (Taping Final) 10%
- Lab Final (Injury Scenario) 15%
The Lecture Midterm and Final is a combination of multiple choice and long answer questions. The lab exams are all practical, there is no written component.

There will be assigned readings from the textbook throughout the semester.
Department Undergraduate Notes:
It is the responsibility of the student to keep their BPK course outlines if they plan on furthering their education.
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
