Abstract:

A global model has been developed with special emphasis on cognitive control processes that may be operative in the learning and performing of complex motor behaviors. It is most meaningful for instructional and self- learning purposes to determine those processes that may be under the control of the learner, and which strategies are available for himher to select from. The ultimate intention of this work is to facilitate the acquisition of skill, and to encourage learners to use self-managed rather than externally-induced strategies as appropriate to achieve goals with categories of psychomotor tasks. Experimental work and an analysis of cognitive and psychomotor literature will lead to the identification of the best of alternative learner strategies to maximize the internal operations that contribute to effective motor behavior.
