Editorial Reviews

Review

"Educational psychologists and teachers at all levels will find the book of definite interest, as will researchers pursuing applications of transfer of learning to educational settings."
--PERCEPTUAL AND MOTOR SKILLS

"...Transfer of Learning provides a readable, interesting, and up-to-date review of the field of transfer... Overall, if you are interested in what psychology has to say about promoting transfer in learners, Transfer of Learning belongs on your bookshelf."
--CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY(2002, Vol. 47, No. 3)

"...I was pleased to find this readable and compelling book that combines solid research references and review with prescriptions on how to improve learning transfer... The writing is compelling and the research reviewed valuable. My copy is already bleeding yellow from the highlighted paragraphs!!"
--CLARK Training & Consulting, Phoenix, Arizona

From the Back Cover

Educators and educational psychologists recognize transfer of learning as perhaps the most significant issue in all fields of instruction. Transfer of learning cuts across all educational domains, curricula, and methods. Despite its importance, research and experience clearly show that significant transfer of learning in either the classroom or in everyday life seldom occurs. Simply put, transfer of learning is illustrated by the phrases "It reminds me of..." or "It's like..." or "It's the same as...". This book addresses the fundamental problem of how past or current learning is applied and adapted to similar and/or new situations. Based on a review of the applied educational and cognitive research, as well as on the author's teaching experience with transfer of learning, this book presents a new framework for understanding and achieving transfer of learning.
Current education and educational psychology textbooks either lack or lament the lack of research and guidance to educators on promoting transfer of learning. Thus this book is a necessary basis for all instruction and learning. Based on history and research, the book shows that transfer of learning is not just a technique of learning or instruction, but a way of thinking and knowing.
