Listen to the Podcast Interview with author Rebecca S. Nowacek and interviewer Angela Rounsaville:
The question of how students transfer knowledge is an important one, as it addresses the larger issue of the educational experience. In Agents of Integration: Understanding Transfer as a Rhetorical Act, Rebecca S. Nowacek explores, through a series of case studies, the issue of transfer by asking what in an educational setting engages students to become “agents of integration”— individuals actively working to perceive, as well as to convey effectively to others, the connections they make.
Rebecca S. Nowacek is a professor of English at Marquette University.
