Reflective Practice Large Group Meeting for Faculty and Teaching Assistants: Learning that Persists: Facilitating Transfer Across Courses, Disciplines, and Contexts

MCSLE Great Room, Elkin Hall Center for Teaching Excellence

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.
