Coaching Pedagogy

2nd March @ 7.30pm

UCD Astra Hall

Successful sports coaching is as dependent on utilising good teaching practices as it is about expertise in sport skills and tactics. In the first of the UCD seminar series, Dr. Seamus Kelly will provide an introduction to the theory of Coaching Pedagogy looking at facilitating  young player’s learning and development through sport. 

This seminar will assist coaches in dealing with the many challenges and problems they encounter. Moreover, this seminar will examine how specific practices such as critical thinking, reflection, questioning and feedback facilitate the enhancement of player learning and development.
