AbstractThe flow concept (Csikszentmihalyi 1975) offers an interesting framework model for motivating, expermental and productive classes in physical education. During the course, selected aspects (including flow experiences, motivation, attention control, feedback) are discussed and transformed into a self-conducted “flow-experience-projekt” closely linked to the students indivdual learning background
ObjectiveParticipants gain in-depth insight into the flow concept and other constructs related to the theory of motivation (self-determination theory according to Deci & Ryan, achievement motivation, etc.) that are also significant in terms of differential psychology (self-efficacy, attribution, etc.). In line with current experimental research in sport (deliberate practice vs. deliberate play, intuitive vs. deliberate decisions, etc.), students develop practical examples for specific exercises in physical education at school.
