The Trouble with Transfer – my #rED16 slides

Today saw another triumphant outing for Tom Bennett’s grassroots conference, researchED. This year I ran a session investigating the research into how we transfer what we learn between different contexts, the slides for which, along with hyperlinked references to the studies I’ve cited, are below.
