About the Author

Richard Light is Professor of Sport Pedagogy in the College of Education, Health and Human Development at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. A prominent figure in research on, and the development of, athlete-centred coaching, his work situates learning and coaching within social and cultural contexts to emphasize the subjective, affective and whole-person nature of experience and learning in sport. His work, which draws on contemporary learning theory, social theory and his experiences of coaching and teaching across a range of cultural settings, has developed into a distinctive approach to sport coaching pedagogy.
