Authentic Discovery Laboratories in Motor Learning.
This study explored the application of authentic discovery laboratory techniques in the teaching of motor learning with 35 undergraduate students. Students received either the traditional theory driven protocol during the laboratory component of a required motor learning class or were asked to complete the laboratory component utilizing "consider" questions and observation notes typical of authentic discovery style investigations. Data analysis demonstrated that students in the authentic discovery laboratory environment scored higher on laboratory report writing and, to some extent, course examinations than did students in the traditional laboratory environment.
