Abstract

This book explores how expertise is developed in higher education, both theoretically and practically, and focuses on this phenomenon in the visual domain. It examines what prompts and inspires students to learn via visual stimulus and shows the usefulness of modeling expert performance to facilitate learning. Characteristics of expertise are discussed in a variety of arts disciplinary contexts to demonstrate how deciphering the visual world can be accomplished. The authors discuss the role that visual stimulus plays within the context of the technologically developed world where educators face new challenges to promote the long-term retention of learning. This book interrogates how the visual is negotiated through various lenses to explore notions of the expert and the novice.
