Easing the Transfer of Students from College to University Programs: How Can Learning Outcomes Help?
Carter, Irene; Coyle, James; Leslie, Donald
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v41 n2 p10-27 2011
Increasingly, students are seeking transfer from college to university educational programs. This challenges universities to assess the effectiveness of transfer policies and also challenges colleges to prepare students for continued education. This paper reviews the various transfer procedures used by Canadian universities, barriers experienced by students seeking transfer, and strategies for improving the transfer process. The authors propose the use of learning outcomes, which identify student knowledge and skills following an educational experience, to develop block transfer strategies that ease student transfer between educational programs.
