This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the physiological and
psychological factors involved in performance and learning of motor skills. The foundation of our
analysis will be the study of human movement and conditions which affect it. We will experience
and discuss both theoretical and experimental evidence of these factors in class, so be prepared
for experiential learning. In weekly laboratory experiments students will gain first-hand
experience with assessing motor performance and learning. Throughout the semester we will
consider applications of motor learning in sport, physical education, and rehabilitation.
The majority of the course will closely follow the textbook: Magill, R. Motor Learning and Control:
Concepts and Applications, eighth edition, McGraw-Hill, 2006. In addition, we occasionally shall
use materials provided online by the publisher. To access these materials students can logon to
the publisher's website http://www.mhhe.com/magill8e The class will also use an automated
student response system for attendance and quizzes and to assist in-class communication. Each
