In this podcast, I sit down with W&M biology professor Paul Heideman to talk about research in the field of expertise and how to apply it to student learning. We talk about what it means to be an expert as well as how experts think about and solve problems differently than novices.

[This is part of our Hallway Conversations series, where Gene sits down with another faculty member to discuss technology, research, and teaching.]
