Transitions and the Development of Expertise
Hallam, Susan
Psychology Teaching Review, v16 n2 p3-32 2010
This paper explores the relationships between the development of expertise and transitions. It sets out what we know about the development of expertise, changes in the brain as expertise develops, and how transitions between different learning contexts and the challenges that they present may impact on developing expertise. It sets out a series of propositions concerning the way that transitions may impact on expertise, the evidence supporting the propositions, and the educational implications.
