- Bradley Dilger and Neil Baird present, “Writing Transfer”
- Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
- Location: Room 180, Leslie F. Malpass Library
- Description: Recently, research in writing studies has more frequently investigated writing transfer: the movement of experiences, skills and knowledges between contexts. Scholars no longer believe this process is automatic; rather, they recognize transfer is often mindful and difficult.
Neil Baird and Bradley Dilger report on their multi-year study of writing transfer in the major at WIU on Thursday, February 7, 2013 at Noon in Room 180 of the Leslie F. Malpass Library. They share discoveries about the metaphors for transfer we use--such as application, integration, or recontextualization--and the impacts of the pragmatic, career-oriented view of education common at state comprehensive universities like WIU. Ample time for discussion will follow their talk.
The discussion is free and open to the public, and attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch.
