From intellectual development to expertise

Thomas Litzinger, Stefani Bjorklund, John Wise

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The transcripts of the student interviews, to search for evidence of their development specifically related to complex problem solving along with the expert knowledge and skills required to support it, are analyzed The analysis of Perry data, to seek an indication of an the progression of students towards expert status within their chosen engineering field, is discussed. The development of a refined interview protocol to elicit information on how students progress towards expertise and about their process for solving complex engineering problems is discussed. A valid and reliable protocol related to engineering expertise must be developed, along with an appropriate experimental design.
