Adaptive expertise in Learning design (21.01 18:00)


Adaptive expertise can be defined as the ability to adapt to uncertain, complex and novel situations while optimally problem-solving in routine situations. Explicit connection of “what” knowledge with “why” helps to create a mental framework that supports the development of adaptive expertise. Small changes in the learning environment can support the development of adaptive expertise. During this session, we explore the relevance of this topic for the trainings you deliver through dialogue and reflection and work towards concrete implementation of the concept in your own training practice.
