Learning transfer refers to the ability of students to take
knowledge, skills, and strategies gained in an educational setting and adapt it
to a variety of contexts (educational, civic, professional, and personal).
While educators recognize the critical importance of transfer as a core goal of
education, researchers have long documented the challenge that students of all
levels have in transferring knowledge across contexts. This interactive
workshop introduces participants to the principles of learning transfer and
offers an opportunity to consider how to build learning transfer into courses
and curricula across the disciplines.
Participants are encouraged to bring their syllabus and course materials
to this workshop.
