Teaching for Transfer of Learning

Transfer of learning, or the use of learning gained in one situation to help in another, is a fundamental goal of education and primary aim of teaching. Unfortunately, transfer of learning is also one of the least solved, most challenging problems in educational research, with much more empirical evidence supporting failure to transfer among students. However, by designing your instructional practices to meet the conditions for transfer, your students will be more likely to achieve it. The purpose of “Teaching for Transfer of Learning” is to introduce the phenomenon of transfer, from research to practice, to better foster it in your classroom via next-day strategies for practical, immediate action.

What Happened to the Adult Learner?

This session is designed to reinvigorate the conversation on instructional approaches that best support the adult learner, or those age 25 and older who may or may not be juggling families and work in addition to pursuing a degree or certification. This panel discussion takes up the questions, who are the “new adult learners” and how can faculty both best respond to their needs, but also leverage their experiences in the classrooms. Faculty and staff share data on the new adult learner, insight into adult learners at OHIO, and new scholarship on adult learning, while adult learners themselves share the types of instructional contexts and strategies that have supported their success.
