Description

A vital topic in higher education is transfer of learning which is defined as the ability to take concepts learned in one context and apply them in another. Transfer has been researched extensively by two major fields: composition studies and educational psychology. In Part II of the Teaching Writing for Transfer Workshops, the Department of Rhetoric and Composition in partnership with the Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT) seeks to build communities of practice across the disciplines to foster qualitative inquiries about ways to see and practice writing. Building communities of practice is an especially valuable concept and an important next step in this series to learn more about how we are all responsible for creating the spaces in which students can adopt and reflect on new writing situations that lead to meaningful high impact transitions.

 

Workshops included (descriptions can be found at: http://bit.ly/Writing4Transfer) are:

1.    Collaborative Auto-ethnographic Reflections: A Teaching for Transfer Primer.

2.    Transfer and Across-Disciplinary Descriptors.

3. Building the Writing View from Everywhere: Co-Constructing Writing Knowledge.

4. Implementing a Pilot Program
