Effect of Coordination Biofeedback on (Re)Learning Preferred Postural Patterns in Post-stroke Patients

Deborah Varoqui, Jérôme Froger, Jacques-Yvon Pélissier, and Benoît G. Bardy

After stroke, ankle-hip coordination during stance is characterized by changes in the postural system dynamics, specifically the disappearance of the in-phase pattern and the reduced stability of the anti-phase pattern. This study was conducted to assess the success of a coordination visual biofeedback for the (re)learning of the two preferred patterns, and to explore the effect of this treatment on postural and functional abilities. Twenty four patients were randomly assigned to one of two experimental groups or to a control group. During one month, patients from experimental groups followed a training protocol on the two preferred postural patterns using the biofeedback device. These two groups improved their in-phase coordination after the (re)learning compared with control group, and showed a related improvement of the functional independence measure. Results suggest that (re)learning the in-phase pattern is possible and seems to improve independence in poststroke patients.

The Interplay Between Learning, Knowledge, Biography and Practice: The Tale of an Experienced Track & Field Athletics Coach

Luke Oldridge, Lee Nelson, Kenny Greenough, and Paul Potrac

This paper examines how the learning biography of Jack (pseudonym), an experienced track and field athletics coach, shaped his thoughts about coaching practice. Data were collected through seven in-depth, semistructured, narrative-biographical interviews that formed part of a cyclical and iterative data analysis process. Our analysis of Jack’s narrative revealed how his understanding of two distinct features of his coaching practice (i.e., implementation of periodization and pedagogical delivery style) developed in contrasting ways. Jack’s story was primarily, although not exclusively, interpreted using Alheit’s concepts of biographical learning and biographicity, Biesta and Tedder’s writings on agency and learning in the life-course, and Jarvis’ discussion of learning as a process of becoming. The findings of this study raise significant questions for how the field of sports coaching seeks to understand coach learning.

Learner-Centered Coach Education: Practical Recommendations for Coach Development Administrators

Kyle Paquette and Pierre Trudel

The complexities of learning and sport coaching have both been widely accepted notions and central themes to their respective literatures for decades (e.g.,  Rogers, 1969 ; Smith, Smoll, & Hunt, 1977 ). Despite being equipped with these fundamental understandings, programs designed to educate
