EXPLORING NEW HORIZONS IN HUMAN PERFORMANCE, WE PUSH THE BOUNDARIES TO BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT MOTIVATES, ENHANCES, AND SUPPORTS HIGH-LEVEL EXPERTISE

The Centre for Elite Performance, Expertise, and Training (CEPET) at Macquarie University conducts multidisciplinary research designed to address three core problems in the study of elite performance and expertise: understanding its acquisition, its maintenance, and its loss.

As well as advancing scholarly knowledge of these three areas, CEPET is equipped to translate experimental findings into real-world applications and tools for training and maintaining expertise, selecting individuals with a propensity for expertise, and providing psychological and social support for individuals who experience a loss of expertise, whether through retirement, injury, or for other reasons.

The strength of CEPET's multidisciplinary team from Psychology, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Anthropology, Music, and Computer Science has led to recent success in a cornerstone 2017 ARC Linkage Project entitled Enhancing Lifeguard Performance: A Multidisciplinary Approach.

Our 2nd Annual Conference is fast approaching, to be held October 9-10 at Macquarie University. The theme of this year's conference is 'Social and cognitive benefits of skill acquisition'. Click here for registration and program details.

The next CEPET colloquium will be presented by Associate Professor Manolya Kavakli-Thorne from Macquarie University on September 13. Visit our Events page for more information.
