Webinar Developing Effective Feedback Strategies

Online (Zoom)

with Clare Guss West

This interactive webinar takes a fresh look at the role and function of feedback in movement skills learning. Participants will be guided through research from the motor skills learning and performance field on optimum feedback frequency and timing for maximum student comprehension, implementation and motivation (Wulf, 2010).

The webinar presents an optimal feedback structure to enhance teaching efficiency and promote permanent changes to movement skills, reducing learning time to mastery. In Zoom Breakout rooms, participants will have the opportunity to create their own optimal feedback examples and exchange and discuss with peers.

The challenges of consolidation of learning and retention of new skills by the once-a-week dance student will be addressed, and specifically how using an external focus of attention (EFA) in feedback can improve both the retention and the transfer of skills learning week-on-week.

Participants will take away new strategies to increase feedback efficiency and optimal feedback examples to give the confidence to begin to implement the new feedback strategies immediately in their own dance practice.

The aims of this interactive webinar are to:

• Re-visit the role and function of feedback in motor skills learning.
• Introduce the FACTS of feedback – Formative, Actionable, Clear, Timely, Supportive – component elements of effective feedback (Wiggins 2012).
• Present research from the motor skills learning and performance field on optimal feedback frequency and timing (Wulf, 2010).
• Reflect upon feedback strategies of self and others with consideration to content, structure, frequency and timing

On completion of this interactive webinar, participants will:

• Develop feedback skills to enhance the efficiency of teaching feedback, particularly considering the learning challenges of the once-a-week student.
• Have an understanding from the research literature of the optimal timing and frequency of feedback.
• Have explored direct examples of an optimal feedback structure using an external focus of attention to enhance retention.
