Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Saturday, May 16, 2009
Learning to danceI came across this process-v-outcome quote yesterday:
any method that encourages...to focus on the process of what they are doing rather than what others are doing (i.e., comparing themselves to others) would be beneficial in helping...attend to relevant cues and improve their skills.
The authors of the quote created a a two page questionnaire to fill out after a training to rate yourself on a set of skills. Filling out the questionnaire encourages "self reflection."
Now, the authors aren't writing about orienteering. They're writing about Salsa dancing. The approach could be easily adapted to orienteering - just change the skills and develop good descriptions of what constitutes "poor performance" and "good performance."
Check out the PDF Success in Salsa: Students' Evaluation of the Use of Self-Reflection When Learning to Dance and see if you can adapt it to orienteering training.
