Bransford, Ann L. Brown and Rodney R. Cocking, editors National Academies Press; 1st edition (September 15, 2000) Introduction Commissioned by the National Research Council, How People Learn presents the conclusions of recent research in cognitive science, and then develops their implications for teaching and learning.

The Nature of Expertise Expertise is on a continuum that runs from novice to expert, and one is more or less fluent in one’s expertise. Expertise is field-dependent.
