Focus of Attention - part 4

9/6/2023
Focus of Attention – part 4 In September 2023 over 70 coaches from grassroots participation to Olympic level met at the UK Snowsports Coaching Conference. The conference theme was “It ain’t what you do but the way that you do it” and blended learning and coaching theory with its practical application. Recorded at the conference, this podcast builds on workshops by Marianne Davies of UK Coaching and Richard Barbour exploring ‘focus of attention’ from the perspectives of Information Processing and Ecological Dynamics theories. After the workshops we ventured onto the indoor snow slope at Castleford to explore the role of tasks and feedback and how they can be used and augmented to optimise learning outcomes - we recorded some of the sessions and participant reactions for this podcast. Along the way you’ll learn about task constraints, focus of attention and the Intention Attention feedback loop. To learn more about these approaches contact richard barbour coaching www.instagram.com/richardbarbourcoaching. There’s a variety of options for local and remote sessions. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/lockedinshed/message

My Favourite PET

10/28/2022
What we see depends where we’re looking. Or more accurately…what we perceive as a coach or performer depends on what we are paying attention to, the information we receive and how we process that information. My coaching guru John Shedden devised a skill model based on the information processing concept in cognitive psychology. This has the same mnemonic as a technical analysis tool. Both models contain the letters P E and T with one of them being a favourite PET of mine when coaching. In this episode we’re discussing the models and their place in coaching and instructing.

What is skill? In this episode I’m continuing my discussion with John Shedden and my intention is to focus attention on skill. John’s book Ski Teaching introduced to snowsports a definition of skill by Barbara Knapp, an academic in the Physical Education Department at the University of Birmingham. In her book Skill in Sport, first published in 1963 she introduced a definition of skill that has been at the heart of UK snowsport coach education ever since. I wanted to discuss this definition and its component parts along with some of the implications for skiers and riders. These recordings are about the art, science and history of snowsport coaching.

Episode 6 Skilful skiing I’m continuing my discussion with the former National Coach and Director of Coaching for Snowsport England, John Shedden. Three of John’s books: Ski Teaching, Skilful Skiing and Skiing: Developing Your Skill are seminal works. From the early 70s they were hugely influential on those developing ski instructing in Britain and form the backbone of national coaching schemes operated by the home nation governing bodies. Having read them as part of my own coach education I set out to discuss some of the key themes to gain further insights. We start by discussing coach education material developed with the help of funding from a well known bank. These recordings are about the art, science and history of snowsport coaching.
