Understanding of physiological and biomechanical processes at the base of the motor skill learning facilities. Knowledge of the principles of skilled human performance. At the end of the course, you will have to: Know the principles of motor performance, the nomenclature relating to movement and the skills characterizing the motor task Apply the principles of skilful human performance Critically evaluate the motor patterns of the subjects under examination Compare different ways of motor learning Classifying the motor skills that characterize a motor task Build / design motor intervention strategies Describe analytically the methodologies used for the different age groups Explain methods of intervention and motor programs underlying the teaching methodology TEACHING METHODS The course includes a subdivision of lessons as follows: frontal lessons and practical lessons. The frontal lessons will be carried out in the classroom while the practical lessons will be carried out in the gym. During the practical lessons, the notions seen in the classroom will be resumed and the practical applications of these topics will be addressed. At the end of each lesson, Educational Innovation tools will be used to facilitate the consolidation of the information given during the lesson just completed. SYLLABUS/CONTENT Introduction to motor performance: The movement, postures and movement patterns. Coordination and conditional skills. Motor skills and learning stages. Individual differences and motor abilities. Principles of skilled human performance: Information processing and decision making. Memory and memorisation process of motor acts.

EXAMS EXAM DESCRIPTION The exam will be Written: multiple choice quiz This teaching is part of the integrated course of "Theory and technique of motor activity - History of sport - Anthropology". For this reason, the exam for this teaching module must be taken together with the other 2 courses on the same session date. The quiz will consist of 3 different closed-ended questionnaires and it will last 45 minutes. Each teaching will have a quiz with 15 questions; each correct question will be awarded 2 points out of 30 while each incorrect question will correspond to 0 points out of 30. Each quiz will be considered passed with a score of 18/30. The exam of the integrated course will be considered passed if all three tests have achieved a score of at least 18/30. The final grade of the integrated course will derive from the weighted average of the three individual grades. In case of certification of specific learning disability, disability or other special educational needs, the University legislation and regulations on disability and SLD are applied (https://unige.it/disabilita-dsa/studenti-disabilit%C3% A0-normative). See also the "Other information" section of this syllabus. ASSESSMENT METHODS The written exam will verify the acquisition of the basic knowledge of the teaching. The questions will allow to evaluate the ability to apply the acquired knowledge in both theoretical and practical fields. You will have to be able to connect and integrate the knowledge learned during the lessons with the knowledge acquired during individual study. The written exam (multiple choice quiz) will mainly focus on the topics covered during both theoretical and practical lessons and will aim to evaluate not only the achievement of an adequate level of basic knowledge, but also the acquisition of the ability to analyse critically the questions that will be asked during the exam. FURTHER INFORMATION In case of certification of specific learning disability, disability or other special educational needs, please contact both the Department contact person, Prof. Nicola Girtler, and the lecturer at the beginning of the lectures to agree on teaching and exam methods which, in compliance of the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning methods and provide suitable compensatory/dispensatory tools recognized by the University SLD Student Service.
