Embedding transitional skills. (2023)
Presentation / Conference
BURGESS, K. 2023. Embedding transitional skills. Presented at the 2023 British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences heads of department virtual event (BASES HoD virtual event 2023), 8 November 2023, [virtual event].

This presentation covers the concepts of "student transitions" and "transitional skills". It describes some overarching approaches to transitional skill enhancement, before examining each transitional skill in more detail and providing examples.

Enhancing student experience through alumni engagement: building a lifelong community. (2023)
Presentation / Conference
BURGESS, K. 2023. Enhancing student experience through alumni engagement: building a lifelong community. Presented at the 2023 International higher education teaching and learning annual conference (HETL 2023): re-imagining education: collaboration and compassion, 12-14 June 2023, Aberdeen, UK.

During academic session 2022/23, a graduate engagement project was undertaken for the BSc(Hons) Applied Sport and Exercise Science course at Robert Gordon University. The aim of the project was to enhance students' knowledge of possible career pathwa... Read More about Enhancing student experience through alumni engagement: building a lifelong community..

Embedding vocational qualifications within a degree course: an example approach. (2018)
Presentation / Conference
BURGESS, K. and STEWART, L. 2018. Embedding vocational qualifications within a degree course: an example approach. Presented at the 2018 Department for the Enhancement of Learning, Teaching and Access (DELTA) Learning and teaching conference (LTC 2018): future work, future graduates; forging the link, 3 May 2018, Aberdeen, UK.

There is growing impetus to 'add value' to student higher education learning experience through the integration of vocational training to better service employer’s needs. In order to enhance students employability in addition to aligning the undergra... Read More about Embedding vocational qualifications within a degree course: an example approach..

Culture, development mechanisms and characteristics: building the profile of the optimal youth football coach. (2017)
Presentation / Conference
CAMPBELL, C., BUCHANAN, N., BURGESS, K., COOPER, K. and MCCANN, B. 2017. Culture, development mechanisms and characteristics: building the profile of the optimal youth football coach. Presented at the 2017 British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of sport and exercise psychology conference (DSEP 2017), 11-12 December 2017, Glasgow, UK.

Social interaction and relationships lie at the heart of the coaching process. Coaches are no longer limited to developing relationships between themselves and the players (coach-athlete relationship) but are instead exposed to connections within a m...

Simulating association between training load and injury using the acute: chronic workload ratio and Bayesian methods in youth football. (2017)
Presentation / Conference
MAUGHAN, P., BURGESS, K.E. and SWINTON, P. 2017. Simulating association between training load and injury using the acute: chronic workload ratio and Bayesian methods in youth football. Presented at the 2017 UK Strength and Conditioning Association annual conference (UKSCA 2017), 4-6 August 2017, Leicester, UK.

Previous research has examined the relationship between relative workload and injury, where acute training load is expressed in relation to chronic training load using simple ratio scaling or non-linear models including the exponentially weighted mov...

The effects of measurement error and testing frequency in applying the Fitness Fatigue Model to resistance training: a simulation study. [Poster] (2017)
Presentation / Conference
STEPHENS HEMINGWAY, B., BURGESS, K. and SWINTON, P. 2017. The effects of measurement error and testing frequency in applying the Fitness Fatigue Model to resistance training: a simulation study. Presented at the 2017 UK Strength and Conditioning Association annual conference (UKSCA 2017), 4-6 August 2017, Leicester, UK.

This research aims to assess the effects of measurement error (typical error) and testing frequency on the ability of the FFM to accurately model resistance training data. A simulation approach assuming correct model specification was used to identif...

The role of selenium supplementation in cardiovascular disease prevention: an in vitro study to identify the molecular mechanism(s). (2015)
Presentation / Conference
LEIGHTON, D., GOUA, M., DOLAN, E., BURGESS, K. and BERMANO, G. 2015. The role of selenium supplementation in cardiovascular disease prevention: an in vitro study to identify the molecular mechanism(s). Presented at the 2015 Nutrition Society Scottish section meeting: diet, gene regulation and metabolic disease, 25-26 March 2015, Aberdeen, UK.

Obesity is a worldwide epidemic, with two thirds of the UK population either overweight or obese (body mass index (BMI) 25–29·9 and >30 kg/m2 respectively). Obesity is characterised by systemic oxidative stress (OS), which itself results from chronic...
