PSY 399 What does it mean to be an Expert?
The key aspect of academia is developing expertise in your field of study; however, experts often do not self-reflect on what it truly means to be an expert and how they have changed since being a novice. This course explores the cognitive, physical, and mental changes that occur, as a person becomes an expert. Students will examine how they became experts through the lens of various theories of expertise and how they will continue the growth of expertise in the future.
