Class Aprendizagem e Adaptação Motora

  • Presentation


    This CU, from the 1st cycle, and from the scientific area, of Physical Education and Sport, provides a broad and comprehensive approach to the problem of lifelong motor learning. The study of these phenomena focuses on the interdependencies between the different domains of development (ie, motor, cognitive, affective, and social) and considers the internal processes associated with practice or experience that lead to gains in the motor performance. The study of voluntary and controlled behavioural transformation will focus on the ecological perspective, considering it as the product of the individual's interaction with the surrounding environment. This interaction should be guided by principles of human and scientific training, so that motor learning issues are addressed through an efficient and appropriate pedagogical act, within a framework of basic body training, leisure, and recreation or sports performance.

  • Syllabus



    1. Definition of fundamental concepts: learning, motor learning, latent learning, motor control, motor behavior, action, movement, performance.


    1. Task analysis and classification systems; main characteristics, determining aspects and components involved in its execution.

    2. Phases of learning motor skills

    3. the acquisition processes, retention mechanisms and transfer determinants. 


    1. Motivation, instruction and demonstration

    2. Organization of the practice

    3. Feedback

  • Objectives


    The present CU aims to provide theoretical and practical basic knowledge and updated in the area of Learning and Motor Adaptation. In this sense, it is intended that the students who attend this CU are able to demonstrate the following competences: 1) To know and interpret the explanatory references of adaptation and motor learning; 2) To know the processes, operations, essential mechanisms of motor performance and to distinguish the framing theories of knowledge; 3) To know the typical evolution of learning individuals and the inherent processes; 4) To identify and theoretically frame factors that influence motor learning and adaptation.
