Hi, I was just wanting to add some thoughts on your chapter - hoping that's ok. I'm assuming you've come across the related book chapters from previous years (for further reading links) - Sensation Seeking (2011), Extreme Sport Motivation (2016), Risk Taking Motivation (2010) are probably the most relevant. The other thing I was thinking is I read an interesting interview with Honnold some time ago - they put him through an MRI and looked at the level of arousal in his brain, finding some weird results: http://nautil.us/issue/39/sport/the-strange-brain-of-the-worlds-greatest-solo-climber. Not sure how indepth you'll have room for (i.e. whether you'll have word-space to explore stuff like that), but thought it could be interesting to at least mention. Hope it might be of some use... Good luck! Cheers, Dot--Foley.d (discuss • contribs) 01:15, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi Lexi, in your comments on canvas you asked for feedback on the case study. I read your chapter (which is excellent, interesting and enjoyable to read) but i wasn't sure where the case study was. Is it in the overview section? Maybe a heading might make it clearer.
The topic development has been reviewed according to the marking criteria. Written feedback is provided below, plus there is a general feedback page. Please also check the chapter's page history to check for editing changes made whilst reviewing the chapter plan. Responses to this feedback can be made by starting a new section below and/or contacting the reviewer. Topic development marks are available via UCLearn. Note that marks are based on what was available before the due date, whereas the comments may also be based on all material available at time of providing this feedback.
Relevant research is well reviewed and discussed in relation to theory.
When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
The presentation is fun, easy to follow, and interesting to watch and listen to.
Well-paced and narrated.
Perhaps also consider using some images of outdoor climbing and big wall/solo climbing - arguably low wall, indoor climbing with safety rope and cushioning mats etc. is about the lowest risk type of climbing.
The font size is sufficiently large to make it easy to read in the time provided.
