This unit aims to develop an integrated understanding of the process of motor learning and motor skill performance. The learning and performance of different motor skills, factors influencing motor learning, and the application of approaches to motor learning and motor skill performance will be explored to provide an appreciation of the theoretical, practical, and research features of motor learning.
|1.||Compare direct and constraints-led approaches to motor learning;|
|2.||Create solutions to common motor learning situations by formulating principles related to effective learning of motor skills;|
|3.||Assess motor learning and skill performance and integrate findings to reflect on effective approaches to motor learning;|
|4.||Analyse results from practical motor learning activities and evaluate findings; and,|
|5.||Evaluate changes in motor learning and skill performance that may occur during skill acquisition.|
|Assignment||Practical laboratory report||40%|
|Assignment||Guided inquiry report||30%|
