Episodic Feelings and Transfer of Learning
Nemirovsky, Ricardo
Journal of the Learning Sciences, v20 n2 p308-337 2011
The goal of this article is to develop a new perspective on transfer of learning integrating cognition, emotion, and bodily experience. It is based on a case study with a 10-year-old girl as she explored the use of a motion detector, allowing for the simultaneous graphing of the position versus time of 2 moving points. The paper elaborates on the notion of episodic feeling and illustrates a phenomenological approach for the study of transfer of learning whose point is not ascertaining mechanisms of transfer but elucidating within the infinite landscape of human experiences certain ones that seem amenable to characterization as transfer of learning. (Contains 13 figures and 4 footnotes.)
