types of instruction 1 experiential
Types of Instruction 1. Experiential
  • Instructor teaches principles then ‘lets student get on with it’
  • Student is responsible for the route taken
  • Time consuming
  • Difficult to apply constraints
  • Can be difficult for the instructor to ‘pull it all together’
types of instruction 2 dictatorial
Types of Instruction2. Dictatorial
  • ‘Sailing by numbers’ -Do this, then do that and this will happen
  • Does not teach principles
  • Does not let the student understand what they are doing
  • Removes any ‘exploration’ in the task
  • Inflexible - parrot learning
  • Doesn’t teach student to make their own decisions based on assessment of situation
edict the combined approach
EDICT- the combined Approach
  • Explanation- the Principles
  • Demonstration
  • Imitation
  • Correction
  • Training (practice)
e xplanation
  • Clear
  • Concise (short)- ‘Bullet points’- Don’t be verbose
  • Be Relevant- avoid going off on tangents
  • Pictures tell a thousand words
  • Use the boat!
  • Audible / visible- have you got everyone’s attention?
  • Understood- test by asking questions

  • Instructor only intervenes if safety is compromised
c orrection

  • Praise/corrective feedback/praise
  • Identify fault(s)-no more than 3
  • Try to get students to do that
  • If they can’t, instructor must do it
  • Once identified, suggest solution
  • Try to give opportunity to apply solution
  • Sunglasses – remove
  • Wind direction
  • Sun
  • Eye contact / level
  • Physical position
  • Pitfalls…..

  • This will reinforce good practice.
  • More feedback can be given as necessary
  • Dissemble a manoeuvre into individual tasks
