About the creator
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schöllhorn is the creator of the Differential Learning System. For many years he trained national and international athletes in different sports. In 1990 he received a PhD in biomechanics from the University of Frankfurt. After having professorships and guest professorships around the world he became professor for training and movement science at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz in 2007. His work in the field of athletics, biomechanics, and motor learning has received several national and international prizes including the Performance Award of International Society of Biomechanics for Differencial learning (DL) and 2006 the "Deutsches Werkbund Label".
Do you want to improve the quality of your training sessions allowing your athletes to learn faster? That's what the Differential Learning System (DLS) will allow you! In this 3 hours course it will be explained to you the advantages of the Differential Learning System compared to traditional training! The students who complete this course will be awarded with a Level 1 Differential Learning System certificate! Traditional teaching and training of sports techniques is mainly dominated by program oriented series of exercises with analytical synthetic construction principles. Most recent investigations question the necessity of program oriented forms of training fundamentally with a high number of repetition of the same exercise (cf. Schöllhorn 1999). The objective of this course is to compare the traditional training method with a differential training showing how to apply this innovative methodology in a coaching context! The students who complete this course will be awarded with a Level 1 (Techniques) Differential Learning System certificate!
DLS initiates most effective learning. DLS leads to highest performance with fun. DLS prevents injuries most effectively. DLS does not only affect your body but also your brain in a holistic way. DLS is based on most recent scientific findings. DLS is taking advantage of the brain’s potential that was only known by asian monks. DLS will not only improve your performance, it will change your personality. (DLS was the basis for many other upcoming training and teaching concepts.)
