Motor Learning class

Students in the Motor Learning May term class study their own skill acquisition process by practicing a novel skill each day. Phases of learning and progressions are used as students practice with the goal of continuous three ball juggling by the end of the short term. Each student records their number of consecutive catches on average for each practice session. Additionally, they write down qualitative notes about their own learning.  Throughout the class students also get to test aspects of motor skill performance like reaction time, anticipation, attentional capacity, visual perception, transfer of learning and many other concepts.
