A Strategy for the Acquisition of Problem-Solving Expertise in Humans: A Systems Approach.
Alma, Carine V.
The acquisition of expertise involves the adoption of a between-systems problem-solving approach. A between-systems problem-solving approach involves (1) category restructuring; (2) analogy formation; and (3) solution construction using symmetrical and asymmetrical mapping information. Category restructuring permits the expert to reframe the initial problem state. Reframing the problem leads to the formation of analogical functional and complementary connections between category members. The identification of symmetrical and asymmetrical mappings determines the extent to which information from an analogous system can be borrowed with or without modification, and subsequently incorporated into a problem solution.
