Anders Ericsson, well-known researcher of “deliberate practice” and the “10,000 hour rule,” died yesterday, sadly.
I interviewed him a while back for Education week (‘Peak’: An Interview With Anders Ericsson & Robert Pool) and you can see quite a bit of info on his work at The Best Resources For Learning About The 10,000 Hour Rule & Deliberate Practice.
You could start with Another Study On Value Of Practice Misses The Most Important Point.
Oh my gosh, I just found out that Anders Ericsson passed away yesterday. I am completely beside myself. His groundbreaking research on the science of expertise and high performance transformed our field. Most importantly, he was always so warm and kindhearted in our discussions. pic.twitter.com/bsuN4DXiVs

Two years ago, another giant in the SEL world also died (see RIP, WALTER MISCHEL, ORIGINATOR OF THE MARSHMALLOW TEST. HERE IS AN INTERVIEW I DID WITH HIM & OTHER RESOURCES).
