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. I knew the world record was only a few strides away so I began to pump every last bit of effort I had left." (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.

However, there can always be room for improvements, e.g. sprinters time at 100m. Types of feedback: * Concurrent: This is an ongoing source of instructions directed at the athlete whilst they are performing. It encourages the performer to change their technique whilst practising. 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.
