INTRODUCTION

The Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education formerly known as Physical and Health Education was established in 1987 prior to the 1988 NUGA games hosted by the University of Port Harcourt.

Since its inception, the Department has been closely associated with the development of sports and Health Education activities within and outside the University environment. The department houses knowledgeable experts in the current techniques of sports training and management and Health promotion. This testifies to the excellent performance and dominance of the University athletes in the NUGA and WAUG games, particularly the last four editions where the University overwhelmingly finished at the top of the medals table to come first.

In the field of academics, the Department offers two 4 year bachelor degree programmes: thus, producing specialists in Human Kinetics and Health Education. The Department awards two degrees: (i) B.Sc. (Ed) Human Kinetics and (ii) B.Sc (Ed) Health Education. Our products are professional teachers, marketers, personal trainers, masseurs in institutions, club sides, recreational centres and other establishments. They also specialize in Health promotions in academic institutions, ministries, Health and related organizations where they serve as social workers, environmental safety experts and providers of primary Health care services.

Presently, the Department’s academic staff strength stands at nineteen (19) on permanent   appointment; and two (2) support staff (part-time). Each permanent staff has as terminal degree except one, who is currently on a Ph.D programme. The Department has five (5) non-teaching staff who contributes to its day-to-day running. The total population of students is 458 which is distributed as follows; year one is 200, Year two is 100; year three is 84, and year four is 74. Each student is required to pass a minimum of 120 credit units including success in teaching practice 1&2 and project.

The Department also runs a one-year certificate programme in Human Kinetics and Health Education, which is either terminal or combined with the minimum requirement for admission into a degree programme as stipulated by NUC.

GENERAL ADMINISTRATION OF PROGRAMME/SUB-DISCIPLINE/DISCIPLINE

This describes how the available programmes (general and specific) are administered. The description highlights the following.

  • Personnel Administration

The organizational structure involves both academic and non-academic staff, with both senior and junior staff playing important roles. Delegation of responsibilities and assignments are the sole responsibilities of the Head of Department who provides the Academic and Administrative leadership in the Department (P. 126 of Fac. Of Edu. Brochure)

  • How Staff are Involved in Decision-making Process

During Academic Board meetings and general departmental meetings, staff get involved in the decision making process in which an individual can come up with useful ideas which form part of the decision making processes.

  • Policy and Practice on Staff Development:

Staff has the opportunity to attend seminars, conferences and workshop on a regular basis.

  • Staff Promotion:

A staff is promoted when he/she is qualified and due recommendations of Faculty Appointment and Promotions committee (c) Approval of the University Appointments and promotions Committee (A&PC). Handling of Academic Grievances: A committee (Professional Ethics Committee) is set up by the university to handle all issues/ethical matters relating to students and staff.

Student Academics Advisers: Academic Advisers are appointed from members of Academic staff within the Department.

  • Examinations:

Setting, Conduct, Evaluation, Schemes and Moderation for both Internal and External Degree Examination and the Issuance of Result: Lecturers set examination questions and also conduct examinations too. Individual lecturers conduct, moderate and evaluate internally, while external examiners from other universities are engaged to moderate degree results. However, there is the departmental board moderation and moderation at the faculty level (Faculty Board). Finally, the university senate approves the result of the examination.        

  • Academic Policies Adopted in Pursuit of Academic Standard and Maintenance of Academic Atmosphere: This is the responsibility of academic staff and the university authority to implement. However, the National Universities Commission plays a significant role in formulating Academic Standards.

VISION STATEMENT

Our vision is to intellectually and professionally empower Nigerians and non-Nigerians to build a dynamic environment through educators and facilitators in order to sustain and continually improve the Nigeria Educational System through Human Kinetics, Sports, Physical activities and Health promotion techniques. This is in accordance with National demands, needs, aspirations as well as meeting global standards.

MISSION STATEMENTS/OBJECTIVES

The mission statement is as follows:

  • To be directly engaged in the creation of excellence in academic evaluation of knowledge delivered in the pursuit of excellence in academic scholarship and intellectual inquiry, teaching, research and public service.
  • To provide the education system with highly competent professionals, such as teachers, administrators and counsellors, who would contribute effectively to the development of Nigerian youths and integration prosperous society. This is to be done through the integration of relevant research and advisory services to the immediate environs, discipline/subject areas.
  • To advance the academic culture among staff through collaborative interaction with professionals in the field, both locally and internationally.
  • To continuously initiate programmes that would have maximum impact on the University immediate environment and the Nigerian society.          
  • Above all, to seek excellence in knowledge and human resource capacity building without sacrificing quality in the Nigerian education industry.

Specially, the department produces specialists in Human Kinetics and Health Education, and runs a dual programme, (Human Kinetics option and Health Education option) and therefore offers a four year degree programme leading to the award of (i) B.Sc (Ed) Human Kinetics and (ii) B.Sc (Ed) Health Education. The Human Kinetics experts teach in secondary schools and colleges. They also work as Coaches, Sport Organizers and Administrators in sports councils and industries. We offer both practical and theory courses. Furthermore, in Health Education, option our experts specialize in Health promotions in institutions, ministries and also work in local, national and global organizations as social workers, environmental safely experts and providers of primary Health Care Services.

THEPHILOSOPHY

OBJECTIVES

Specially, the department produces specialists in Human Kinetics and Health Education. The department of Human Kinetics and Health Education runs a dual programme, that is Human Kinetics option, and therefore offers a four-year degree programme leading to the award of (1) B.Sc (Ed) in Human Kinetics and (2) B.Sc. (Ed) in Health Education. The Human Kinetics experts specialize in teaching in Secondary Schools, Colleges, as Coaches, Sport organizers, Administrators in Sports Councils and industries. We offer both practical and theory courses. While experts in Health Education are functional in institution of learning, community Health promotion, NGO Health related bodies, and Environmental Health and safety professionals.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

The admission requirements for entry into either Human Kinetics or Health Education degree programmes are in conformity with the university entry requirements;

These include at least 5 credits in GCE, SSCE, and NECO, TC II, or NABTEB. Including credit Pas in English language, Mathematics, Biology and two others, as well as success in the university Matriculation Examination [UME] as determined by the university. Candidates who obtained a credit level pass in the university of Port Harcourt certificate programme in Human Kinetics and Health Education or from any other recognized university in addition to the required. O’-Level candidates may also be required to pass an interview organized by the Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education.

ACADEMIC REGULATION

  • Highlights

The following extracts have been taken from the document “Statement of Academic Policies, University of Port Harcourt 1996”. This document was issued first in 1977 and revised in 1983 to reflect the re-organization from a School system to a Faculty system. It was also revised in 1990 to reflect changes in line with the NUC minimum Academic Standards. The present revision reflects changes made by Senate in 1995 thus; students are advised to familiarize themselves with this document.

The last section of this chapter deals with general- remarks which have been included to alert fresh students on the implications of the new grading system in relation to his/her final degree classification, and the virtue of and reward for hard work, honesty and abstinence from vices: examination malpractice and cultism.                  

REGISTRATION OF COURSES

Every student is required to register for all courses during the time stipulated which is usually at the beginning of the session. Students who cannot register during the specified time may however register later but all registration procedures must be completed within the time allowed for late registration.

Any registration completed after the time specified becomes null and void and will not be credited to the student even when he/she has taken and passed the examination in the course. Students shall not be allowed to sit for examinations in courses for which they have not previously registered. Such actions are fraudulent and culprits will be appropriately disciplined.

Academic staff are not to entertain any request for late registration. Any genuine request for late registration must be cleared with the Senate Division, Office of the Registrar, and a late registration fee of 50% in addition to the total payable fee per course shall be charged. Faculty Officers are to comply with this guideline in all cases.

STRUCTURE OF THE REGULAR DEGREE PROGRAMME

The National Universities Commission requires that each student should spend a minimum of four years and a maximum of six years for graduation. It also specifies a minimum academic standard that requires that each programme in the University should as much as possible be organized into the following types of courses:

  • General Studies Courses
  • Core Courses (Faculty of Education Courses)
  • Area of Specialization Courses in Education (Department Courses in Education).
  • Courses in teaching Subject Area.
  • Community Service.

Each course has a specified unit number, one unit being one hour of lecture for a week, 3 - unit course means three hours of lecture in a week. Each student will be required to cover a minimum number of unit hours for the entire degree programmes stipulated by the student’s department. This will usually be 50% of the hours required by the department. This is in addition to ten (10) weeks spent for teaching practice during the entire programme. The ten weeks are distributed thus: 4 weeks at the end of year 2 and 6 weeks at the end of year 3. The specified unit number for teaching practice is 2 and 4 units for years 2 and 3 respectively. For details of the courses and the unit hours needed to be covered to graduate, the student should refer to the appropriate section of this brochure that covers his or her Department.

APPROVED DEGREE REGULATIONS

To obtain a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.Sc.Ed) Degree in the Faculty of Education, the student shall:

Complete the programme of study approved by Senate on the    recommendation of the Faculty Board of studies consisting of:

  • Cores Course in Education
  • Special Area Courses in Education
  • Courses in Teaching Subject Area
  • University wide Courses.
  • Sit for and pass all examinations on the prescribed courses registered for.
  • Achieve overall grade point average (GPA) of not less than 1.00 in the courses registered.
  • Satisfy all financial obligations to the University as well as others relating to attendance and character as may be prescribed by the Senate.
  • Be formally recommended by the departmental Board of Studies of the Department and Faculty for the award of the degree.

GRADING SYSTEM

The following system of Grade Points shall be used for all faculties (see table 1)

0 – 39

F

Students are obliged to sit for examination in all registered courses. Any student who fails to sit for a course examination without satisfactory reason earns the grade of “F”

COMPUTATION OF GRADE POINT AVERAGE

Every course carries a fixed number of Credits Units (CU); one Credit Unit being when a class meets for one hour every week for one semester, or three hours every week in the laboratory, workshop or field. Quality Points (QP) are derived by multiplying the Credit Units for the course by the Grade Points (GP) earned by the Student: for instance; with 3 Credit Units in which a student earned a B with 4 Grade Points, the Quality Points are: 3x4=12.

Grade Points Average (GPA) is derived by dividing the Quality

Points for the semester by the Credit Units for the semester: for example in a semester where the Student earned 56 Quality Points for 18

Credits Units, the GPA is; 56/8=3.11.

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is derived by adding the Total Quality Points (TQP) to date and by the Total Credit Units (TCU) to date: e.g. if the TQP is 228 and the TCU is 68, the CGPA is 228/68=3.35.Detailed example of how to calculate GPA and CGPA is as presented in table two (2).

  • Grades obtained in all approved courses of a student’s prescribed programme, excluding audited courses, shall be used to compute the GPA.
  • Where a student has registered more than the allowed number of courses, elective courses chosen in the order of registration, will be used in computing the CGPA. Other elective courses will be treated as audited courses and will not be used in calculating the CGPA.
  • Where a student registered for a course but the result is unavailable due to no fault of the student, he/she will re-register for it the next academic year.
  • When a student transfers from one Faculty to another, only the grades obtained in the course in the new prescribed programme of study will be used to compute the CGPA. Courses which were completed before the change of programme will be treated as audited courses.

DEGREE CLASSIFICATION

The degree shall be awarded with 1st class, 2nd class upper, 2nd class lower, 3rd class Honours, or a Pass degree. The Cumulative Grade Point Average for these classifications shall be:

CONTINUATION, PROBATION AND WITHDRAWAL

The essential points on the subject matter are as highlighted below:

  • Continuation Requirement

The continuation requirement in the university is a CGPA of 1.00 at the end of every academic year.

  • Probation

Probation is a status granted a student whose academic performance falls below an acceptable standard. A Student whose Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is below 1.00 at the end of a particular year of study earns a period of probation for one academic session.

  • Limitation of Registration

Students on probation may not register for more than 18 units per semester. The purpose of the restriction is to give the student a chance to concentrate on improving their performance and thus raising their CGPA

  • Warning on De-registration

Students should be warned by their Department if at the end of any semester their GPA falls below 100.

Repeating Failed Course Unit(s)

Subject to the conditions for withdrawal and probation, a student must repeat the failed course unit(s) at the next available opportunity, provided that the total number of credit units carried during that semester does not exceed 24, and the Grade Point earned at the attempts shall count towards the CGPA.

  • Withdrawal from study

A student whose Cumulative Grade Point Average is below 1.00 at the end of the year’s probation shall be required to withdraw from the programme.

Duration of Programme

Programme lasts for a minimum of four years and maximum of six years.

  • Auditing of Courses

Students may attend courses outside their prescribed programme. The course shall be recorded in their transcripts only if they registered for it with the approval of the Head of Department, the Dean of their Faculty and must have taken the prescribed examination. An audited course shall not be used in calculating the CGPA.

  • Academic Advisers

Every student is attached to an Academic Adviser who is a member of the academic staff and who will advice him/her on academic affairs as well as on academic progress and provide counseling to them on personal matters. .Academic Advisers are expected to follow their students’ academic progress and provide counseling to them.

It is the duty of the Head of Department to assign an Academic Adviser to every student at the beginning of each session. Academic Advisers should give clear information on the notice boards or on their doors about appropriate time and places within the university where they will be available to students who wish to consult them during the official hours.

GENERAL REMARKS

All the regular students admitted into the 1st year of the Faculty of Education must have met the entry requirements, and thus are eligible to pursue the available careers in the Faculty. However, experience has shown that many of these students relax efforts in the early years of study, apparently, assuming that like the practice in the primary and secondary schools, they would make up for the lost efforts in their later years of study. This assumption is false in the Nigerian University System.

Here at the University of Port Harcourt, every registered course (except officially dropped);           

  • Requires a minimum of 70% attendance to lecture/tutorial (L) and (T) or Laboratory (L)Practice (P) to qualify for examinations:
  • Must be continuously assessed through assignments, tests, etc;
  • Must culminate in an examination and must have a grade returned for every student who registered for it, which must comprise of at least 25-30% from the continuous assessment and 70% from the examination.
  • Each course in the programme contributes toward the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) with its weights (credit units). In the Faculty of Education, the weights for a course may be 1,2 or credit units as the case may be, except for the final year project whose weight is 4 credit units. Teaching practice is offered at the end of year 2 and 3. Most top job opportunities in the job market are usually reserved for graduates with excellent or very good degree classified (1st class or 2nd class upper division). For example, to be qualified to become lecturer in the University, one’s first degree must not fall below 2nd class upper division. And to qualify for admission into a post-graduate degree programme at the University of Port Harcourt, one’s degree must not fall below a high 2nd class lower division (that is, his/her final CGPA must not be below 3.0.

    In terms of the letter grades earned in all the courses offered in a given academic programme of study, 1st class, 2nd class upper division and “high” 2nd class lover division.

  • The 1st class is equivalent to the attainment of at least *A*, ‘B’ average (a minimum final CGPA of (5+4)12=4.50) during the course of study. To achieve this, one must earn very few ‘Cs” say, two or three, and more ‘As’ than *Bs’ in all courses. Earning even one ‘E’ grade and /or ‘Ds’ can be fatal.
  • The 2nd class upper division is equivalent to the attainment of at least ‘B’, ‘C’ average (a minimum final CGPA of 3.0) during the course of study.
  • To achieve this, one must be an average student throughout the programme of study.

    Therefore, for the ambitious student, hard work begins from year 1 and spans through year 4. Few low grades can thwart a student’s ambition. However, one should always be true to his/her abilities, and not resort to cheating to claim what does not belong to him/her.

    Appendix “A” presents some of the penalties for a false ambition (examination malpractice). Students are therefore advised to completely avoid vices (such as secret cultism and examination malpractice) that will ultimately put them out of course and disrepute. They are rather encouraged to be obedient, humble and law abiding and to act in such a manner as to achieve their primary purpose of advancing their education. The Department also offers Post-Graduate courses at both Masters and Doctoral levels in collaboration with the College of Graduate Studies. Details are available at the College of Graduate Studies of the University of Port Harcourt.

EXAMINATION MALPRACTICE

Any student found guilty of examination malpractice shall be expelled (see examination malpractice section of the brochure).

FORGERY

Any student found guilty of forging certificates, transcripts and other official documents shall be expelled from the University.

DEAN’S LIST

A student, who by virtue of his/her performance at the end of any academic semester achieves a GPA of 4.00 or over, will have his name published in the Dean’s list of the faculty. Each list is valid for one semester following the publication of the result and until the publication of the result of the next semester. The names on the Dean’s list reflect not only the excellent performance of the students but also demonstrate academic capabilities of a high degree. Consequently, such a student may be required to take extra courses beyond the normal course load. The above academic regulation is subject to the general university policy/regulation and can be changed at any time by the university senate.

TEACHING PRATCTICE

The period of formal studentship include 1st and 2nd Semesters excluding Holiday Periods. The students are expected to complete two periods of teaching practice in year 2 and year 3 for a period of six weeks each.

Course content specifications/syllabus of all courses in the Programmes: Certificate, B. Sc (Ed), M.Sc Ed and Ph.D.
