Similarly, Tripp (1993) contended that computer-based simulations were not sufficient, and reiterated that “true expertise is learned by being exposed to experts” (p.

In discussing instruction which puts forward a single, “correct” interpretation, Spiro, Feltovich, Jacobson, and Coulson (1991b) contend that “single perspectives are not false, they are inadequate” (p. 22).
