Of Tacit Knowledge, Texts and Thing-based Learning (TBL)
Rangachari, P. K.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v36 n5 p363-364 Sep-Oct 2008
Practical knowledge has two dimensions--a visible, codified component that resembles the tip of an iceberg. The larger but crucial tacit component which lies submerged consists of values, procedures and tricks of the trade and cannot be easily documented or codified. Undergraduate science students were given an opportunity to explore this component through an inquiry-based course.
