Introduces students to the major concepts related to the theory and application of motor learning. Develops students' ability to structure, present and evaluate effective learning situations when teaching human movement.
- Measurement and analysis techniques in real world motor performance situations
- Defining and assessing learning and its relation to the transfer of learning
- Action/reaction preparation
- Attention and memory and its influence on learning
- Stages of motor learning (Motor Learning Models)
- Demonstration and instruction and its influence on learning
- Augmented feedback and its influence on learning
- Practice distribution and variability and its influence on learning
- Practice specificity, design and mental practice influences on learning
- Applied skill acquisition
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
