'Carving nature at her joints' - A conversation with Andrew Wilson
Andrew Wilson is a researcher from Leeds Beckett University in the UK who co writes about ecological psychology in a fascinating blog 'Notes from two scientific psychologists'
In this fascinating and insightful conversation Andrew and I explore various aspects of Ecological Psychology and try to apply them to real world problems in coaching. We explore the following:
The difference between affordances and information
Why "context isn't noise...it is signal"
How information is the key to effective transfer
Why motor control researchers are to blame for the lack of understanding of the ecological approach
This conversation has a lot of theoretical heavy lifting in it but stick with it as it will be worth it.
