Deliberate practice and training for mastery

An established method to improve performance is to expose students and trainees to practice scenarios which are just beyond their current level of competent and proficient performance, coupled with feedback on their performance. When this is done systematically, as part of a program of training, cumulative improvement in performance is an expected outcome. The discipline to undertake a regular program of deliberate practice is supported by intrinsic and extrinsic motivation factors; and underpins the development of high level expertise, and mastery in any discipline and area of professional practice.
