How We Learn: A Motor-Learning Project for Physical Education Majors
Abstract: One way to help physical education preservice students to think critically about the learning of physical skills is to provide hands-on experiences in which performance and learning can be seen and measured. Developing knowledge of these processes, however, requires creative and carefully planned exercises that can illustrate principles in a straightforward manner. This article describes a multilayered assignment that can be used to help preservice students analyze the processes involved in learning, including reflection on the conditions that promote (or detract from) learning, and to provide a setting in which learning can be measured.
