My specific research questions are focused on examining practice factors facilitating motor skill acquisition across the lifespan. Such general topics include knowledge of results, observational learning, repetition scheduling, self-controlled practice contexts and subjective error-detection and correction accruacy.

Current areas of inquiry are:

1. Identifying and understanding the practice contexts strengtheing the error-detection and correction capabilities of the learner during motor skill acquistion;

2. Identifying and understanding the role of practice onctexts opitmally challenging the cogntive processes of the leaener based on the placement of task-related augnmented information during motor skill acquistion;

3. Identifying and understanding the mechanisms underlying the learning advantages of performers provided the opportunity to individualize their motor skill acquisition context (e.g., self-controlled practice contexts);

4. Application of motor learning principles to tasks performed in everyday living (e.g., use of a touch screen)
