Knowledge, Learning, Community
Expertise, writes Clark Quinn, is not based on knowledge of facts but rather is a memory of processes and activities - skills based on pattern-matching and finding meaning rather than memorization. This translates to the workplace, where managers are interested not in what people know, but rather, what they can do. Consequently, he writes, learning objectives ought to be written in terms of performance rather than recall.
