The aim of the course is to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge for designing physical activity to maintain the autonomy of the elderly persons through structured, controlled physical exercise and sports activities. The sports activities are considered as every physical activity which, by means of an active involvement organized or not, aim to express or improve the physical and psychological condition, the development of social relations or performance on competitions of different levels. The course aims to provide the theoretical, technical and educational fundamental aspects of adapted physical activity. THE CORPOREITY OF THE ELDERLY PERSONS PLAYS A FUNDAMENTAL ROLE IN THE PROCESS OF AGING, SOCIALIZATION, OF THE PERSONALITY THROUGH SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS OF THEIR OWN LIMITS AND POTENTIAL. The role of physical activity has its basis in the education to physical exercise through the conscious, programmed and controlled movement in its fundamental components corporeal, expressive, communicative, relational as function of morpho-functional changes of senescence, but also related to a healthy lifestyle. The analysis of the remaining motor skills along with cognitive, affective and social areas contributes to the formation and development of the identity and maintenance of the person's autonomy through physical activities. Laboratories to enhance active learning. Particular attention will be given to the role of the teacher-entertainer through interdisciplinary experiences and by operating in different contexts and populations.
