Improving the Outcomes for College Students Transferring to University
Carter, Irene; Coyle, James P.; Leslie, Donald R.
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v2 p54-60 2009
The authors discuss the challenges of transferring from college to university programs. Following consideration of the practices associated with transferring credits and creating articulation agreements, the authors suggest the use of learning outcomes. Noting the challenges, as well as the benefits, they propose using learning outcomes as an alternative to existing transfer practices. Continued collaborative research and planning efforts between colleges and universities are stated as being essential to improving the transfer process.
