The goal of learning is to develop strong thinkers and problem-solvers who can apply what they have learned in the classroom to innovate in the real world. That’s learning transfer. This On-Your-Feet Guide to Learning Transfer will help you break down the steps needed to implement this important strategy to engage and motivate your students and make your classroom relevant.


This On-Your-Feet Guide provides:

  • A step-by-step method for ensuring that learning transfer happens in your classroom
  • Guidance on how to identify the concepts in learning outcomes
  • Examples showing how to write concept questions to help students make their own connections between key concepts
  • Prompts to help students apply conceptual relationships to increasingly dissimilar contexts

Full of rich examples and ideas, this guide will make learning transfer a successful learning strategy in your classroom!

On-Your-Feet Guides (OYFGs) provide you with the ultimate “cheat sheet” to implement effective change in your classroom while in the moment of teaching. Designed for accessibility, and providing step-by-step guidance, the OYFGs are written by experts who take research-based practices and make them doable for the busy teacher. 
Each On-Your-Feet Guide is laminated, 8.5”x11” tri-fold (6 pages), and 3-hole punched.
