Supporting the Maintenance of Expertise

  • Hans Gruber
  • Christian Harteis
Part of the Professional and Practice-based Learning book series (PPBL, volume 24)


The notion of lifelong learning clearly implies that it is not sufficient to develop professional expertise. It is similarly important to put effort into the maintenance of expertise. Hence, a further section of the book sketches those aspects that crucially change at workplaces and analyses research that addresses questions on how experts deal with such changes in order to maintain their high performance level. Doing so, experts themselves shape change and innovation at workplaces.
