Performance Analysis Revisited 02

Leave a comment

This is a companion post to Performance Analysis Revisited 01.

I was invited to a seminar at Sheffield Hallam University in 1999 at a time when there was a lot of discussion about the establishment of the English Institute of Sport. I was delighted to be invited to the seminar chaired by Professor Roger Bartlett in the Centre for Sport and Exercise Science.

The aim of my presentation was to explore a vision for performance analysis that would underline its meta-importance to an Institute of Sport and its interdisciplinary potential. I have added narration to the SlideShare and the Slidecast lasts for approximately 12 minutes and 25 seconds. In order to extend my use of the Slidecast option I tried an audio capture with QuickTime and a USB microphone. I imported the MP4 file into Audacity and then exported the file as an MP3 file ready for upload at Internet Archive. I archived the audio file at the Internet Archive. If you choose the full screen option for the SlideShare you can see the progression of the narrative and there should be an automatic change of slides.

In the presentation I mention Dava Sobel‘s book Longitude (1996) and the paper by Will Hopkins, John Hawley and Louise Burke Researching Worthwhile Performance Improvements published in SportScience.

As I was preparing the SlideShare for the archive I watched this SlideShare about presentations. It is fascinating to compare today’s principles with early explorations of PowerPoint. I use Keynote these days and am moving more and more to the use of images and minimal text.

Like many people I lament PowerPointlessness and trust that by sharing archive material I can be part of a creative process about using presentations asynchronously to stimulate and support teachable moments or readiness to learn.

This is the 1999 presentation and its format is a you will see, a child of its time. I do hope the ideas are less time constrained!
