Informal Learning and the Acquisition of Expertise

Researchers say that it takes right about 10 years to acquire expertise in anything.

And the Tiger Woods video above notwithstanding, it isn’t innate talent that makes you an expert, but those 10 years of study and practice. That explains why Tiger Wood is better golfer than Paul Jones.

But what explains why Tiger is better than all his rivals, who have, after all, been playing just as long as he has and sometimes longer?

For answers to that question and the role that informal learning plays, visit The Learner’s Guild, my blog on informal learning, for the post called ‘Let Us Now Praise Famous Informal Learners.’
