Invisible Transfer: An Unexpected Finding in the Pursuit of Transfer
Schieber, Danica L.
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v79 n4 p464-486 Dec 2016
Much research shows that students do not transfer learning well from one class to the next. This study was designed to investigate if students were transferring rhetorical strategies from their disciplinary courses to advanced writing courses. The findings suggest that business majors not only transferred rhetorical knowledge from their other courses, but they did so in a way that is invisible to both themselves and their own writing instructors.
