Abstract The Guided Experimental Learning (GEL) training system is designed to promote the development of adaptable experts who not only learn to perform in routine situations but also are able to apply their skills and knowledge when conditions shift and change. GEL mandates that all trainees be provided with both conceptual and procedural knowledge about how to perform tasks and solve problems. The fact that GEL provides novice trainees with a specific, effective way to initially solve problems and perform tasks is viewed by some as preventing or restricting the adaptable application of knowledge after training. The purpose of this brief paper is to examine the most current evidence for training strategies that produce adaptability. The discussion is structured around evidence that is available to answer a number of questions about adaptable expertise and GEL. 1. Are some experts more adaptable than others? Solid research evidence supports informal observations that some experts are more adaptable than others. For example, Hatano and others (Hatano, 1982; Hatano & Inagaki, 1986, 2000) have described the differences between “routine expertise ” and
