Sunday Funday!! Happy Easter instafolk!!! 😂🐰 .· 🎥 @thegayesy
Hello There Long Weekend!!!!! 🍃🚲😍 · I hope wherever you are and whatever you get up to, you enjoy time in special places, with special people and/or some super special food (nom nom nom 🍫). 👋
The joy of friendships, and fun in the sun! · So wonderful to see you @pogoodytwoshoes 😆😘 · Photo by @thegayesy and EllieDog.
How do we learn to trust our bodies as we explore a new skill? What does this process feel like as we experience it in challenging and unfamiliar situations? How can we scaffold it, encourage it? What are the roles of other bodies in helping us to trust our own? · Kristina Brümmer, pictured, and I have been exploring these questions on the trapeze and at weekly handstand classes at @themovementacademy. We hope to write a research paper bringing together methods and theory from sociology, performance studies, anthropology and cognitive science. · If you have any thoughts on how you develop your own sense of trust while learning a rad skilled manoeuvre we'd love to hear them too! · iPhone photo: just the right nudge at just the right time with the master @bernard_bru_. 🙌 (I feel like this emoji was designed for this image!)
"But I didn't think Jasmine flowered at this time of year." "Shhhhhh......It'll hear you!" · A little bit of magic in our lovely, homely garden. 🌱
"Our skillful capacities are dynamic. They waver. Sometimes we gain things in one area while losing something in another, then grow in another direction entirely. Research on skill emphasising constant progression needs to reflect this." 🤸♂️🤩 · An excerpt from my talk yesterday 'The dynamic experience of embodied expertise' at a workshop on Minds in Skilled Performance at University of Wollongong. · I shared some of my fieldwork learning the trapeze and spoke about the importance of considering complex real-world case studies in challenging or high-pressure situations when researching all the incredible things a human body can do. (A lot of philosophy and psychology research on skill uses quite simple case studies, like putting a golf ball in a lab.) · It was an excellent and thought-provoking day with a hugely interesting mix of people thinking about thinking. Thank you for inviting me to present and thank you so much to everyone involved. 🙌 · Photo by a class mate doing some of the right things and some of the trying-hard-compensating-harder things about a year ago @themovementacademy. Thank you too!
