THE LEARNING CONNECTION & TEACHING SNOWSPORTS Presentation Supplement
At Interski 2015 in Ushuaia, Argentina, the PSIA-AASI National Team asked colleagues throughout the snowsports education world to consider one basic question: “What is great teaching?” This focus informs our ongoing research and development as the U.S. team refines the Learning ConnectionSM – a framework, first introduced in Ushuaia, that offers simple guidance for creating deeper connections between student and teacher.
The Learning Connection emphasizes that great lessons rely on the instructor’s ability to offer a blend of people skills, teaching skills, and technical skills. Whether students are new to skiing and riding or experts seek-ing greater mastery of their chosen sport, this approach creates informative, fun, and personalized experiences that keep students engaged in the learning process for life.
