Random Walk in Learning: Problem of Being an Expert and Having Expertise
Random Walk in Learning: Problem of Being an Expert and Having Expertise:
Is expertise pure “social-fact”, a socially recognised procession of a collection of “scientific fact” as in positivism, or a connection of nodes including other experts, databases or organisations?
I’ll respond on corante sometime today, but… neither is true. expertise is not a fact, expertise is the process of developing and maintaining a base level of knowledges and practices. Without maintenance, you lose expertise, there are many people who were experts, just as there are scientific papers that contained ‘facts’. In the end, expertise is about learning and learning is a process that does not have an end of having ‘learned’ something that becomes an object, and thus a fact, instead learning is about the process of coming to be in the world and constructing ways of interacting with the world. expertise then… is not a social fact or an institutional fact, but it is a collaborative process.
