Use less words, teach more skills! Simplify and enhance your teaching of motor skills in this active and interactive session. This upbeat session is designed to provide you with two essential teaching techniques that you can learn quickly and use immediately to more efficiently develop the physical competence of your students.

This session is focused on teaching techniques that help teachers become more efficient at developing the physical competence of their students. Physical educators can increase student activity time (i.e., the time they need to learn skills), reduce instruction time and reduce management time by using quality demonstrations. Quality demonstrations also support congruent feedback that is essential for skill learning (Rink, 2003). Participants will be able to perform quality demonstrations, identify phases of movements, and deliver congruent feedback by the end of this active and interactive session. The session will also touch on the emerging research examining the use of video feedback to support motor learning, self-assessment and motivation (Potdevin et al., 2018).
