How your ENVIRONMENT impacts on EVERYTHING you do
Skill is the ability to adapt to your ENVIRONMENT
The defining skill of ADAPTABILITY
On today’s Brain Booster we welcome one of the world’s leading experts in skill acquisition Professor Ian Renshaw
Ian has a Sport Science and PE background and this frames his approach to working with coaches and teachers.
Ian’s awareness of the ideas of Ecological Dynamics emerged when he was completing his Masters degree in Coaching Studies at Moray House in the 1990s and built on his previous work as a PE teacher and framed in his own work as a practising coach.
Since then he has combined his teaching, research and coaching to develop his practice by developing a deeper understanding of the key theoretical ideas of Ecological Dynamics and its implementation through a CLA. Ian has a deep passion for improving practice and continues to test his ideas in his own coaching and teaching.
Ian along with Peter Arnott has created the program Swing it Like Tiger
