Introduction

"Discuss the role of feedback in the teaching of skills" " When I saw the finish line I felt excited, even more when I saw the time.

(Paula Radcliffe-The Times) Feedback is the information that tells us about movements we made. (Applying Psychology to sport, Barbara Woods 1998) Towards the end of World War 2 a scientist, Norbert Wiener was developing the concepts of feedback-loop control systems. In every feedback-loop, as the name suggests, information about the result of an action is sent back to the input of the system. Feedback is split into two major categories: * Intrinsic * Extrinsic Intrinsic feedback This type of feedback is the 'sensory information that arises a natural consequence of producing a movement'. It can be sensed from organs in the muscles and the joints called proprioceptors and paramount in learning a skill.

This way the athlete can begin to feel the correct action and become more comfortable with it. * Terminal: This occurs after the action or performance, to allow the athlete what was right, wrong and improvements pointed out. * Delayed: Excellent after a strenuous match. This is giving the athlete time to think about their performance, feedback is given in time-"delayed". * Positive: Praising the athlete for their actions, hopefully repeating it in the future. * Negative: giving this type of feedback informs the athlete they are doing something wrong, following it should be constructive criticism for improvement to follow. ...read more.
