Acquiring wisdom: embedding threshold moments into expertise transfer programs

Sally Hawse

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


This research examines how notions of expertise and wisdom are operationalised at key junctures in the work lifespan. The topic is explored through the lenses of: What is the nature of capabilities demonstrated by ‘experts’ and ‘wise colleagues’? How do novices compare? Where can expert or wise capabilities best be embedded at different stages of the work lifespan? What are current models for assessing expertise and/or wisdom, and what commonalities link them? How do groups shape or generate expert practice, particularly domain specific knowledge? How impactful are socially constructed models of learning, such as cognitive apprenticeship, in successful expertise transfer programs? What linkages does this research have with knowledge management, knowledge transfer and/or knowledge translation?
