Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, you are introduced to the processes and techniques used in the acquisition of motor skills. The common theoretical approaches to understanding how people learn and perform motor skills will be examined. You will learn about key concepts in motor learning and techniques such as the use of feedback, verbal instruction, implicit learning, and constraints-based design as well as how to measure and track the results of learning. You will apply knowledge of practice design to create and test learning programmes to influence the development of sport and exercise skills. The subject will also provide you with an understanding of how to adjust tasks to suit the needs of individual learners and a set of guidelines for selecting appropriate approaches to learning.
