About this product
- DescriptionThis book was the first handbook where the world's foremost 'experts on expertise' reviewed our scientific kwledge on expertise and expert performance and how experts may differ from n-experts in terms of their development, training, reasoning, kwledge, social support, and innate talent. Methods are described for the study of experts' kwledge and their performance of representative tasks from their domain of expertise. The development of expertise is also studied by retrospective interviews and the daily lives of experts are studied with diaries. In 15 major domains of expertise, the leading researchers summarize our kwledge on the structure and acquisition of expert skill and kwledge and discuss future prospects. General issues that cut across most domains are reviewed in chapters on various aspects of expertise such as general and practical intelligence, differences in brain activity, self-regulated learning, deliberate practice, aging, kwledge management, and creativity.
