Toward a unified model of motivation for training transfer: a phase perspective | SpringerLink
The purpose of this book is to emphasise to tertiary educators and trainers the importance of transfer and in doing so highlight the participants' voices as central foci in coming to an understanding of the process. There has been little if any substantive material on tertiary transfer issues and yet demands are increasing for tertiary education providers to be more accountable and more focused on developing students' ability to use their learning in everyday work situations.
The book is unique in that it adopts a phenomenological perspective and underscores the significance of the participants' voices in understanding issues.
