Transfer of learning: Issues and research agenda

J.P. Mestre, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

This is a report on a workshop held at NSF in 2002. It begins with a broad introduction to the transfer of knowledge, discussing why it is both central and timely to the country's educational mission in science, mathematics and engineering. Next the background leading up to the workshop is presented, including the governing charge and organizing themes. The author then presents the research agenda that resulted from the participants' deliberations, and concludes with final remarks to place the research agenda in perspective. An appendix contains a complete participant list and the agenda followed in the workshop.
