Researchers, coaches, teachers, and rehabilitation specialists will welcome a new paradigm for incorporating more empowerment and decision-making responsibilities into learning motor skills with Ecological Task Analysis and Movement. This book presents the Ecological Task Analysis (ETA) model, which offers strategies for replacing authoritarian practices by promoting student choice and an empowerment approach to learning. The text not only helps researchers design methodologically sound studies to test ETA principles, but it also shows practitioners how to apply these principles in coaching, teaching, or therapy.

This ground-breaking book honors and advances an approach to understanding human movement developed in the 1990s by Allen Burton and Walter Davis, and this book is dedicated to Burton’s memory. The ETA model is believed to be more efficacious than the categorical approach in special education and adapted physical activity, the teacher-directed approach in physical education, and the prescriptive approach in the therapies—all of which dominate today. Unlike the others, the ETA model provides insight into the dynamics of movement behavior by examining the interacting constraints of performer, environment, and task. It encourages empowerment, which increases students’ intrinsic motivation and self-confidence and improves their performance while decreasing problem behaviors.

The theories on which ETA is based have had a revolutionizing impact in biology, psychology, evolution, and human movement science. Ecological Task Analysis and Movement describes that impact and encourages its growth in research, teaching, coaching, rehabilitation, and other settings. This book

  • illustrates the strategies for conducting empirical work within the ETA framework;
  • provides examples of how researchers and instructors have applied procedures outlined in the ETA applied model to assessment, instruction, and research;
  • offers strategies for practitioners to replace authoritarian practices with those that give students and patients decision-making responsibilities; and
  • inspires and challenges readers to apply the practice of empowerment to teaching, coaching, and treatment.
