The Dreyfus Model – From Novice to Expert

This presentation by Dave Thomas talks about the Dreyfuss Model of Skill Aquisition and how it applies to software development. However, the ideas and insights seem to apply to a number of other contexts, in particularly learning and teaching at Universities. I certainly found a lot of points that resonated.

The content in this presentation is expanded upon in this book which is also available here.

    That’s pretty darn cool seeing & hearing Dave Thomas in the flesh. I very much like the Pragmatic Programmers book (and some of their other titles) and their approach generally. If only it were more widely read and thought about around here.
