 Journal of General Psychology: The development of expertise: animal models?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Skoyles (1999) argued that the environmental demands for the development of expertise were the primary catalysts for the rapid increase in brain size among early Homo sapiens ancestors.
There are two modal definitions of expertise proposed in the human literature: (a) Either expertise is the matching of a preset criterion level of performance for a skill, or (b) it is being in the top 5% of performers of a skill.
I agree with Wagner and Stanovich (1996) in their assertion that it is inaccurate to define expertise as exceptional performance or being in the top 5% of performers in a domain and that a more appropriate functional definition of expertise is derived from the matching of a preset criterion-level of performance.

 law.com - Dealing With Jurors' Expertise
As blanket occupational exemptions for jury duty become a relic, litigators are split on whether there's a need for specific jury instructions to keep jurors from relying on their expertise in evidentiary matters.
The court acknowledged the conundrum faced by professionals: separating life experience from expertise, and that "the personal mental processes" of jurors would not be subject to impeachment.
Diamond is currently looking at the tapes to observe the interplay of occupational and work expertise on those deliberations, and has found that 22 percent of the jurors had occupational or work experience backgrounds that related to evidence in their trials.

 Competence, Proficiency and beyond
The most embraced model of professional expertise is that based on Donald Schön's (1983) idea of "reflective practice".
It may be a necessary condition of expertise, but it is self-evidently far from sufficient; and as a necessary condition, it may well be an epiphenomenon-a spin-off, rather than a cause.
The diagram above represents the situation of a practitioner whose expertise lies in a slightly different area from the first: competence is about 90% the same as the first, the areas in which she contextualises about 66%, the contingency area overlaps by less than 40%, and there is no overlap in creativity.

 "The Selection and Deflection of Expertise in Delphi Exercises" (1972)
Among the variations of expertise that we have studied are the prima facie variation of level and area of expertise.
It follows that expertise in long-range value forecasting by the Delphi technique is not cost-effective, since the laymen forecast the same as the professionals, and (presumably) cost less in terms of honoraria, etc.
Is "expertise" a sufficiently internalized norm to counteract the effect of the group norm or consensus?/26/ If not, the possibility always exists that the manager of the Delphi exercise can manipulate and distort the experts' opinions and judgement.

Experts performance in their domain of expertise exceeds that of the uninitiated, yet in neutral domains the expert cannot be differentiated from the novice.
As repertory of expertise increases there is a corresponding decrease in the use of "basic" science in decision making.
As expertise and competence increases the individual increasingly internalizes control over the learning situation and the honing of performance.

 Teacher Expertise
In addition, truly expert teachers would be in a position to communicate radical ideas that might "weaken the social order." In short, the more expert teachers are, the greater the possibility for both economic and social upheaval.
That good teaching incorporates a moral component indicates both a direction for defining teacher expertise and the inadequacy of some present-day programs of teacher education.
They must show not only pedagogical expertise, but the recognition that the moral issues at the heart of education are no mere matter of that expertise.

 Expertise Management: Who Knows About This?
To find out, Anderson turned to the DOC Insider, an expertise location system that the department had recently purchased from Bellevue, Wash.-based AskMe Corp. After typing in his question, Anderson first found some documents that were related to his query, but they didn't explain the EU tax code completely.
For example, Mary over in the records department might be focusing on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance this summer, but a year from now she might have moved on to another company issue—and department.
There seem to be a lot of possibilities for interweaving expertise management with specific enterprise applications, such as supply chain management or sales contact management.

Hedgehogs routinely over-predicted: twenty per cent of the outcomes that hedgehogs claimed were impossible or nearly impossible came to pass, versus ten per cent for the foxes.
Bush Administration loyalists say that their predictions about postwar Iraq were correct, just a little off on timing; pro-invasion liberals who are now trying to dissociate themselves from an adventure gone bad insist that though they may have sounded a false alarm, they erred “in the right direction”—not really a mistake at all.
