Understanding Writing Transfer

Understanding Writing Transfer: Implications for Transformative Student Learning in Higher Education, featuring work from the Center for Engaged Learning’s 2011-13 research seminar on Critical Transitions: Writing and the Question of Transfer, is now available from Stylus Publishing.

In addition to co-editing the volume with Randy Bass, I wrote the opening chapter, “Five Essential Principles About Writing Transfer.” The book examines what we know about transfer of writing knowledge and practices across the university and is written for a broad audience of higher education stakeholders. I will continue to add resources to the companion website to support discussion of the book, so please check back often.

The book reflects the culmination of research conducted by forty-five researchers from twenty-eight institutions in five countries.
