A Problem of Transfer from the Interpersonal Communication Course (Or Any Other) to the Real World--What's the Hang-Up?
Makay, John J.
The author contends that accountability is not a matter of measurement of transfer of learning to the outside world, but rather a matter of making courses real, genuine, and pragmatic with substance, activity, and measurement within the course. The educator's responsibility lies in the development and offering of a learning environment which is relevant and which provides students opportunities to learn speech communication in ways they can apply to the real world. The student is responsible for the application of what he learns in class to the outside world. The author concludes that transfer from communication courses will take place if educators meet their responsibility in experiencing the "real world" with their students within the course and if the students in turn meet their responsibility in making applications to their world.
