GALVAO, Afonso; PERFEITO, Cátia  e  MACEDO, Ricardo. Desenvolvimento de expertise: um estudo de caso. Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.34, pp.1015-1033. ISSN 1981-416X.

This qualitative exploratory research aimed at investigating the ways in which a person became an expert at a field of knowledge, taking into account expertise theory. The study focused on the participant’s process of professional development and check whether this coincided with those factors the literature point out as determinants for expertise development such as favorable environmental conditions, deliberate practice, personality and motivation. An expert whose domain of knowledge is learning evaluation was interviewed at depth by means of semi structured interview. Results suggest that the participant had, since childhood, an stimulating environment and presented a strong motivation to stay in his area of expertise in the long term. However, rather differently from a dominant view in the literature, it emerged from this research that in the first moments of involvement with the field there were several severe criticism on his performance which actually served as motivational factors to get himself deeply involved with the area.
