  3. Discuss the cognitive skill learning characteristics of motor control and functional skill development by analysing their measurement in research and application to practice
  4. Identify key attributes of learning proposed by leading researchers in the field, and discuss hypotheses that attempt to explain why motor learning occurs; and
  5. Discover theory to practice techniques from the literature that can be directly applied to professional areas to benefit student/client motor learning.
