About the Project

This project can be offered either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Please email the prospective supervisor for more details.

Much is known about effect of practice structure on the learning and retention of sporting skills in controlled environments and to novel tasks in these environments. However, these controlled environments are removed from the dynamic interactive ones in which coaches work. The aim of this project is to examine the findings of research in controlled settings by carrying out similar research in real world coaching environments. The greater ecological validity of the research will enable practical guidelines to be given to coaches in the sports studied. Suitable applicants will hold a coaching qualification that enables them to lead coaching sessions in their particular sport.
