Teaching for Transfer: Writing across the University

Jessie Moore, Associate Professor of Professional Writing and Rhetoric, Elon University

What do we know about how students apply writing knowledge and strategies to new contexts? How can we facilitate students’ transfer so that they take what they learned about writing in previous classes and use or adapt that writing knowledge in our classrooms? This session briefly synthesizes research on writing transfer before giving participants an opportunity to brainstorm and design assignments that support students’ writing transfer.
