Hello. As we near the end of our course, I wanted to think carefully with you about something called writing transfer. This is of key importance because it involves you thinking about how you're going to transfer the knowledge, practices and skills that you've gained in this course, and that you continue to gain. To other writing situations. For any course to be really useful across any discipline, any course, you want to think about how you can apply that knowledge and bring that knowledge to other situations. As well as reflecting on you as a learner, right? What did you as a learner learn in that course that you can now bring to other, other situations and perhaps change and reshape depending on the context. So, writing transfer is a term that people in the field of writing studies talk about it's, it's of key importance so I, I want you to be thinking about, about your own writing transfer. Some of the key points about writing transfer include. That it is dynamic, which means it's not a static process where even you have like a set of ideas and you bring it from one writing occasion to another writing occasion. Sometimes that's true, but I think it's more about the idea that you are transferring the way you approach things and some of the practices that you've gained. And then adding new contextual information to those in a new setting. So for example, if you take a course like this, like English composition one, and you learn a way of writing here. And then you go to write a lab report in a biology class two years from now, you'll want to think about how you can adapt, and shift, and shape the, what you learned about yourself as a writer to that biology lab, occasion. And, and that occasion in the biology class is going to be reshaping and reconstituting the way that you write too. And then you're going to continue to build up on that, sometimes in a recursive nature. The categories of things to think about with writing transfer include skills. Right? Specific skills concise writing might be, might be one of those skills. But also process, the process of drafting and revision, and feedback. And of designing and posing questions. And of researching, those are all processes. And then finally, it's a complicated word but it's a good word, epistemology, which is kind of the, the way that you make knowledge, it's the way that you learn things. So how can you transfer what you are learning about yourself as a learner to other occasions and this might involve things to do with writing or it might involve. Things to do with knowledge experience, interaction. It might be kind of things that even expand beyond the category of, of writing itself. I have two reflective questions that I'd like you to think about with writing transfer. This is the first of them. I'd like you to spend five minutes thinking about what writing do you anticipate doing in the next few years. I want to think about writing transfer specifically about writing for right now. So, what writing do you anticipate doing in the new few years? Whether it's within an academic setting, or outside of an academic setting. I would like you to just reflect for five minutes on that please. Okay, we're back. So hopefully, you've, you've come up with a large range of different writing kinds of occasions that you'll be able to have the opportunity to engage in in the next few years. And now, for our second reflective writing transfer question. I'd like you to now think about what writing practices and skills do you now have to draw on? So specifically you as a writer. What have you learned in this course, and what can you bring with you to other writing occasions? And it might actually be something that you've acquired, or it might be something that you've learned about yourself, or it might be something that you. Are still working on, right. What are you still continuing to work on that, that is really going to be a good thing that you get to practice it in another writing occasion. So please spend five minutes reflecting on, on you as a writer. What have you learned in this course and what do you think you can draw on from that? Welcome back. I hope you have given yourself credit and addressed everything that you have learned, because you, you, you really have hopefully have, have, learned a lot, especially with all the writing and self-reflecting you've done. So I I again want to remind you that sometimes writing transfer involves specific skills or practices about writing. And then sometimes it can be other kind of epistemological discoveries that you might have made or endeavors that you're, that you're working towards, right? Like interacting with others or responding to others or reading, researching. So. Think about, about those things too. And, for this class to have meaning, You are now kind of responsible for helping that meaning have, continue to have great significance. So, I, I tried, within the course, to help you become a more effective writer. But now. You know? Writing transfer means that you are, are in charge of, of bringing your, your own transfer to bear on, on other writing occasions. And continue to reflect and reshape your practices as you move forward. So, thank you. And, and I'm excited to see how you transfer. Your writing knowledge to all kinds of other learning experiences that you have.
