Transitions and Trajectories for Studies of Expertise
Lajoie, Susanne P.
Educational Researcher, v32 n8 p21-25 Nov 2003
The transition from student to expert professional can be accelerated when a trajectory for change is plotted and made visible to learners. Trajectories or paths toward expertise are domain specific and must first be documented and then used within instructional contexts to promote knowledge transitions. This article describes how models of expertise can serve to help students attain higher levels of competence. (Contains 2 notes.)
