Expertise and Professional Learning: Connecting Quantitative and Qualitative Perspectives

Expertise in a professional domain is associated with reproducibly superior performance in workplace tasks. For several decades, research on expertise has aimed to understand the processes underlying expert performance, using a range of different methodological approaches including, but not limited to, neurosciences, eye tracking, verbal analysis, and ethnographies. This keynote presentation will discuss if and how different methodologies can be connected to afford a more comprehensive understanding of expertise and professional learning. A particular focus will be on the expertise development of teachers in schools, athletes in sports, and clinicians in medicine, and how the findings derived from diverse methodologies can inspire the education and training of novices.
