Transfer of Learning: Issues and Research Agenda

author: Jose Mestre
description: This March 2002 workshop on the transfer of knowledge was held at NSF to "discuss past and present issues of transfer as it pertains to education and to generate a research agenda for the future." The workshop was to inform future research within NSF's Science of Learning Centers (SLC) initiative. The resulting paper is organized around the following three themes: context dependence of transfer, conditions for transfer, and metacognitive issues for transfer of learning. Members interested in research on learning may find this document (including the references) useful.
