Dieses Buch ist der erste umfassende deutschsprachige Sammelband zur Expertiseforschung. Der Beitrag der deutschsprachigen Forschung zum Thema zeichnet sich u. a. durch eine immer stärkere pädagogisch-psychologische statt einer allgemeinpsychologischen Ausrichtung aus. Die Förderung des Expertiseerwerbs sowie die Suche nach praktischen Anwendungsmöglichkeiten der Forschung in der (vor allem beruflichen) Praxis sind Indikatoren für diese Entwicklung. Die Beiträge namhafter Autoren sind in zwei Teilbereiche unterteilt: 'Theoretische Einordnung von Expertise' und 'Methoden der Expertiseforschung'.
