Teaching for Transfer: Learner-Centered Practices for Helping Students Plan, Monitor, and Evaluate their Learning

  1. Wednesday, November 6th, 20133:30pm - 4:45pm

In this workshop, we’ll explore some simple, easy-to-use practices for “teaching for transfer,” which means assisting students to develop meta-reflective habits of mind useful for mindfully transferring knowledge and strategies from task to task and context to context. Teaching for transfer may be especially important for today’s students. While the “millennials” are described as task-oriented, willing to work hard, and comfortable with highly structured and compartmentalized activities (cf. Wilson, 2004), many experience difficulty consciously and explicitly planning, monitoring, and evaluating their learning, which are practices shown to be useful for self-regulating learning and thus facilitating transfer. We will discuss teaching practices such as these, and we will brainstorm other activities that can be used within a busy semester to maximize the potential for transfer.
