Feedback Coursework

Extracts from this document...


Feedback Coursework Feedback is a source of learning to help sportspeople improve or correct a performance. When we use feedback, its aim is to help us analyze and improve our performance. We learn skills through practice, and the learning is greatly affected by the type and method of feedback we receive. The term feedback refers to all the information we receive about our performance. Below are two types of feedback that are commonly used throughout training and the learning of skill. Continuous feedback is the type of feedback we receive during our performance. This type of feedback comes in two forms, kinaesthesis and proprioception. It is basically where we, as a performer, are talked through a skill. Terminal feedback is the feedback we receive after a performance has been completed. Football teams watch a recording of a previous match, where praise or criticism is given in order to help either the individual, or team. However, feedback isn't everything. Every player will benefit also from experience. Alongside appropriate feedback players will store this information in their memory and recall it in a match-type situation. Even thought feedback is used throughout a player's participation, it is essential in the earliest of the three learning stages. Good and appropriate feedback during the cognitive phase is crucial in building a player's confidence at an early age. ...read more.


A performer inputting a maximum amount of effort is unlikely to let the techniques learned go to waste. However this could be detrimental, as, if a wrong technique is learned and not corrected, the performer will have that technique lodged in their brain, which can be very difficult to correct. Within the concept of feedback there are two main types. Internal/intrinsic feedback is the first of the two forms of continuous feedback. It comes from inside the body via the proprioceptors. As the name suggests it is internal, meaning it is dealt within by our own mind. Kinaesthesis is a secondary form of intrinsic feedback. It involves small reactions within the brain that automatically react if something within the performance is done wrong. They let the body know something hasn't been done right thus letting the performer correct their method internally. The second type of feedback is External/Extrinsic/Augmented. Since it is external, the actual feedback we receive comes from an external source, be it by sight, sound e.t.c. When a football player shoots, he can judge if his attempt is successful by visually seeing if the ball is nestled in the back of the net or not. There are however, two methods of feedback; they are not types but more ways in which to apply feedback. Firstly is positive feedback. ...read more.


Here they can analyze their own performance, internal feedback, as well as external feedback from the coach. They can think more about the technicalities of the skill, rather than the basic performance themselves. For example, a golfer can now think where it is they wish to place the ball, rather than just intent on hitting the ball straight e.t.c. The Autonomous stage this is where all of the world's top sportspeople are. They perform all the skills automatically and rely mostly on intrinsic feedback. The feedback is more technical, and not based on simple performance specifics. For example, a golfer can really rely on the specifics of the shot, while in the associative phase they are relying on where to place the shot, autonomous performers can aim to place spin, bounce or even use the different types of shot available with expert precision. In conclusion, feedback is essential for learning skills, throughout even to the professional level as assessing the person's performance can let the player reach the elite level of the sport. It is essential that any low level coaches are thorough in their use of correct and productive feedback. Personally, I aim to use feedback extensively to help myself perform at a higher level within my sport, football, and to hopefully take my game to a higher level and compete in a more elite type competition. ?? ?? ?? ??
