Transfer of learning happens when a learner applies what they know beyond the initial learning experience. This is an important outcome for our teaching, and it is often challenging for our learners. Recent research shows that how we “frame” a learning experience — how we describe relevant contexts during the learning activities — can increase the likelihood of future transfer. In this quick bite, come learn about transfer and framing, and explore concrete language we can use to help our learners better take what they learn from us into future contexts.
