PE 422 Motor Learning and Skill Acquisitions

This course investigates principles underlying the acquisition and control of motor skills. Emphasis is given to a sound theoretical base from which to design and implement optimal learning and performance conditions. Motor control is studied through an information processing and dynamic systems lens. Motor learning/performance variables such as transfer, modeling, feedback, practice schedule, mental practice, memory and attention will be discussed and applied to PK-12 motor skill teaching.
