Transferring Learning from the Classroom to the Workplace: Challenges and Implications for Educational Leadership Preparation
Barnett, Bruce G.
Educational Considerations, v32 n2 p6-16 Spr 2005
Given the importance of preparing administrators who can lead school improvement efforts, the purpose of this article is to explore ways in which the knowledge and skills about leadership for school improvement obtained in preparation programs can be transferred to the workplace. The author begins by examining the concept of transfer, particularly the factors influencing successful transfer. He then outlines the specific challenges educators face when attempting to assist aspiring school leaders to apply ideas and lessons learned to the workplace. Promising strategies for promoting transfer are identified before concluding with some final implications for educational leadership preparation programs. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
