Description

Details

This introductory undergraduate book offers a fundamental understanding of motor performance theory. Revised and updated, this new edition uses a problem-based approach to learning and skill instruction. Students learn the basics of motor performance while, at the same time, developing problem-solving skills through a series of applied exercises. Using examples that are practical rather than abstract, this text leads students to make the connection between theoretical information and real-life appication. Readers learn how to ask the right questions to conceptualize problems in a more effective way. Based on Richard Schmidt's conceptual model of human performance, this text challenges students to think critically across a wide range of applications. They should then be able to: identify the pertinent factors contributing to the problem; provide viable intervention strategies; apply effective motor learning principles; set up effective practice routines; set realistic goals; measure progress; and apply critical thinking skills.
