A Chronological Synopsis of the Dimensions of Expertise: Towards the Expert of the Future
Germain, Marie-Line
Online Submission
This paper concisely chronicles the evolution of the concept of expertise since the 1960s. After presenting the key themes of expertise throughout the years, we propose a breakdown of the evolution into three waves: information-processing wave, speed/problem solving wave, and emotional intelligence/ways of expertise wave. We then show the mimicking of this progression with other fields such as business and psychology while highlighting the probable characteristics of the "future" expert. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
