There is increasing evidence that motor learning principles can have a positive effect on skill acquisition in various patient populations. However, it has been found that their actual impact on clinical practice is limited. This course provides a summary of basic motor learning principles, including the types and stages of learning, practice schedules and feedback. Each concept will be explored in relation to clinical examples in order to highlight how these principles can enhance skill acquisition during physiotherapy interventions.


The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the basics of motor learning, including how practice schedules and feedback can be used to enhance learning.
