A constraints-led perspective to understanding skill acquisition and game play: a basis for integration of motor learning theory and physical education praxis?
Background: In order to design appropriate environments for performance and learning of movement skills, physical educators need a sound theoretical model of the learner and of processes of learning.
The Role of Nonlinear Pedagogy in Physical Education
In physical education, the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) pedagogical strategy has attracted significant attention from theoreticians and educators for allowing the development of game
Nonlinear Learning Underpinning Pedagogy: Evidence, Challenges, and Implications
This article provides a brief overview of the framework of nonlinear pedagogy and evidence emanating from motor learning literature that underpins a nonlinear pedagogical approach. In addition,
Nonlinear Pedagogy: An Effective Approach to Cater for Individual Differences in Learning a Sports Skill
The results suggest that degeneracy is effective for learning a sports skill facilitated by a Nonlinear Pedagogy approach and challenge the common misconception that there must be only one ideal movement solution for a task.
A constraint-led approach to sport and physical education pedagogy
ABSTRACT Background The Constraints-Led Approach (CLA) has emerged as a viable pedagogical option for teachers and coaches in the sport and physical education. The emergence of a CLA to teaching and
Nonlinear pedagogy: a constraints-led framework for understanding emergence of game play and movement skills.
The data and theoretical modeling presented in this paper provide a rationale in nonlinear dynamics for the efficacy of a prominent model of game play teaching, Teaching Games for Understanding approach.
Nonlinear Pedagogy in Skill Acquisition: An Introduction
Nonlinear pedagogy is a powerful paradigm for understanding human movement and for designing effective teaching, coaching and training programs in sport, exercise and physical education. It addresses
Ecological dynamics and motor learning design in sport
An ecological dynamics approach to motor learning that identifies the learner–environment relationship as the basis for learning design in sport and discusses the implications for a nonlinear pedagogy after providing a brief explanation of key ideas in ecological dynamics.
