Critical Transitions Online focuses on Studying and Designing for Critical Transitions: Writing and the Question of Transfer. This free online seminar begins June 3, 2013, and continues through June 22, 2013. Studying and Designing for Critical Transitions: Writing and the Question of Transfer introduces transfer theories, investigates current transfer research in writing studies, and explores future directions in transfer research and its implications for curriculum design.
