About this title

Synopsis:

Motor learning is the study of how we learn (or acquire) motor skills. Understanding motor learning is important for individuals involved in instructing or teaching movement skills, such as physical education teachers, primary education teachers, coaches and exercise scientists.
Motor Learning and Skill Acquisition is organised to initially provide a general understanding of what motor learning is and some important variables related to understanding learning in sport and physical education. Once the reader understands what learning is and some factors that can influence learning, the topic of motor control in introduced.
Understanding how we control movement is important as a basis for understanding how to develop approaches for teaching and coaching. If an instructor understands how someone produces a movement, they will be much better equipped to be able to help a learner to actually do it. The book then goes further and explores how to create an effective learning environment to assist in learning and performing movement skills in physical education, exercise and sport science.
Being an instructor in physical education, exercise and sport science is an art, and the topics covered in the textbook will provide students with a research and theoretical basis on which to make decisions about how to set up learning environments to help learners achieve their best.
