Sociocultural theory applied to motivation of practice suggests that motivation resides not within the individual, but within the domain of social and cultural contexts united by shared action and activity.
Function-Based Treatments for Escape-Maintained Problem Behavior: A Treatment-Selection Model for Practicing Behavior Analysts. Kaneen B. Geiger, M.S. Behav Anal Pract. Spring;3(1) Function-based treatments for escape -maintained problem behavior: a treatment-selection model for practicing.
Thus, motivation to practice is not simply within the locus of the individual see Incentive theories: intrinsic and extrinsic motivation , but rather the locus is the activity and its specific contexts of which the individual is a participant. Anders Ericsson writes about motivation to practice. He creates a theoretical framework for acquisition of expert performance that discusses the issue of a lack of motivation to practice.
He writes:. Engagement in deliberate practice is not inherently motivating.
Performers consider it instrumental in achieving further improvements in performance the motivational constraint. The lack of inherent reward or enjoyment in practice as distinct from the enjoyment of the result improvement is consistent with the fact that individuals in a domain rarely initiate practice spontaneously. The motivational constraint, mentioned above, is important to consider as it is an important premise of Ericsson's theoretical framework for deliberate practice. He finds that because participating in deliberate practice is not motivating that individuals must be engaged and motivated to take part in improvement before deliberate practice can even take place.
These children displayed immense interest in continuing the activity, so the parents then began implanting deliberate practice.
This came to be extremely successful, which Ericsson cites as proof that his theory works when put into action. He finds that children must have the passion to improve their skills before deliberate practice begins in order to really be successful. Duvivier et al.
They defined deliberate practice as:. They further described the personal skills learners need to exhibit at various stages of skill development in order to be successful in developing their clinical skills.

Retrieved How well one improves with practice depends on several factors, such as the frequency it is engaged in, and the type of feedback that is available for improvement. Current Directions in Psychological Science , 20, The effects of variable-time delivery of food items and praise on problem behavior reinforced by escape.
This includes:. While the study only included medical students, the authors found that repetitious practice may only help the novice learner year 1 because as expertise is developed, the learner must focus and plan their learning around specific deficiencies.
Curriculum must be designed to develop students' ability to plan their learning as they progress in their careers. Finally, the findings in the study also have implications for developing self-regulated behaviors in students. Initially, a medical student may need focused feedback from instructors; however, as they progress, they must develop the ability to self-assess.
Skills fade with non-use. Practice is therefore performed on a regular basis to keep skills and abilities honed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
