Teaching Expert Learners

Kapp Notes

Here are some tips for teaching expert learners. So the question becomes, what is the best method for teaching experts in a certain domain of knowledge? Finally, when teaching executives or highly experiences managers, treat the subject as a “scale up” and not a new topic. For example, if you tell a mid-level executive you are going to teach them about leadership, their reaction is “hey I already know about leadership, that’s why I am a where I am in this organization.”
