Abstract: Nonlinear pedagogy (NP) approach encourages exploratory learning with Physical Education (PE) teachers, applying key pedagogical principles that focus on manipulating task constraints and creating representative learning designs to enhance skill-learning. This research project showed that students taught with an NP approach demonstrated more individualized and creative movement solutions to learn a motor skill and, despite the reduced emphasis on prescriptive instruction and drill, still achieved success. Importantly, these students also showed more effective game play characteristics after a series of PE lessons based on NP principles. Interview data from students and teachers provided insights on their positive perception of NP and its potential impact on teacher education and professional development.
