A move towards reconceptualizing direct instruction in sport coaching pedagogy
In this episode, I am joined by Dr. Edward Cope from Loughborough University to discuss his paper with Professor Christopher Cushion titled: A move towards reconceptualizing direct instruction in sport coaching pedagogy. Ed and I discuss what direct instruction is, how it has become something that has negative connotations associated with it in sports coaching, and why it, therefore, needs reframing. We also speak about Cognitive Load Theory and Mosston and Ashworth's spectrum of teaching styles. During the dicussion, we refer to various resources which can be seen below, including the paper by Ed and Chris.

Professor Richard Light - Founder of Positive Pedagogy for Sport Coaching
In this episode I am joined by Professor Richard Light, the founder of Positive Pedagogy for Sport Coaching. Professor Light works at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. His early work was in the sociology of sport with a focus on culture and embodied learning but over the past decade he has drawn on this work to inform a distinctive program of research focused on a socio-cultural approach to pedagogy and on the body's role in learning. He draws on learning theory and some social theory to inform this work. Professor Light has a broad background in teaching and coaching across a wide range of cultures, having coached and taught in Australia and Japan and having held academic positions in Japan, France, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. This background encourages him to establish a dialectic between practice and theory that is a feature of his research and his teaching. He enjoys a strong international profile, is widely published and has published in Japanese, Portuguese and French as well as English. You can contact Richard on Twitter at @richardlight11 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org (work) or email@example.com (personal).

Player-centered coaching with Nick Hill
In this episode I speak with Nick Hill. Nick is head coach/director of rugby of the Men’s Rugby Club at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). He took over the club in Fall, 2018. Hill has an impressive resume of international coaching experience from several different schools in the U.K. to schools and clubs in Chile. Along the way, there were self-funded trips to shadow the coaching staff of the Canterbury Crusaders in New Zealand and then again with the Ulster Rugby staff in Belfast. Hill is also a devotee of the Gambetta Athletic Improvement Network or GAIN for short. Nick believes in a player-centered environment. This is one where Games Based Coaching is used with a purpose for game action where players learn skills in the context of the real game, rather than just for the sake of a drill for drill’s sake. Players are encouraged to work things out for themselves and are not just told what to do. Guided Discovery questioning is one of the key coaching tools for Hill. This develops a culture that motivates the player’s involvement in practice as more than doers of drills, but active learners that take ownership of their development.
