Learning Psychomotor Skills in TAFE (or The Psychology of Psychomotor Skills). Educational Psychology for TAFE Teachers.
Developed for use in Technical and Further Education (TAFE) teacher education, this module is intended to widen teachers' knowledge and understanding of the psychology of psychomotor skills to improve teaching of psychomotor skills in the TAFE classroom or workshop. The module is divided into two parts: basic and advanced. The first part, "What are Psychomotor Skills and How Are They Taught?" contains two sections: The Nature of Skills and Skilled Performance, and Teaching Psychomotor Skills in TAFE. The second part, "The Influence of Certain Variables on the Learning of Psychomotor Skills," includes five sections on these variables: Practice, Guidance, Feedback, Methods of Organizing Practice, and Motivation. Each section contains informative material as well as activities and questions for discussion. An appendix provides two class exercises in the form of simple experiments designed to investigate the influence of some of the variables discussed. (YLB)
