The aim of this workshop is to present and discuss various topics on skills. Here, a skill means humanfs ability to make something or to play something using his/her hands or bodies. For example, to play sports, to draw paintings, to play musical instruments, and to cook something are examples of such skills. A human repeats interactions with environments to do something as the skill. One cycle of the interaction consists of recognition of objects or environments, Selection of appropriate action, and execution of the action. A learner repeats these processes when he/she learns skills and trains skills. In this workshop, analyses of such skills are important issues. In addition how to learn skills or how to train skills are also important issues. Moreover, designs or developments of learning environments or training environments for skills are also important topics. Not only completed research papers but also ongoing research papers are welcome.
Participants in this workshop will be able to know various aspects of skills and also various approaches for skill learning research. Fruitful discussions on skill learning and training are expected in this workshop. Hopefully, this workshop will contribute to develop new skill learning studies.
