摘要:Although the construct of knowledge transfer first appeared in psychology journals at the beginning of the 20th century and has been refined, especially over the past thirty years, within the field of cognitive psychology, it is only in this century that the field of composition studies has started paying attention to the importance of knowledge transfer in learning how to write. The impetus for this new area of interest largely emerges from the nagging sense among first-year writing instructors, some compositionists, program directors, and colleagues from other disciplines that whatever is being taught in first-year writing classes does not “transfer” to later courses in which students need to write effectively. This talk explores some new trends in teaching writing that value more explicit teaching of “threshold concepts” thought to be critical to transfer of writing knowledge. Promising areas such as genre awareness, rhetoric, writing processes, and self-efficacy will be discussed, including some practical applications.
