Learning Transfer Climate Faced by Nursing Majors – Application of Academic Writing Skills from an English-for-general-academic-purposes (EGAP) Course to Their Content Courses
The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R. (China)
Since a main goal of education is to help students improve their performance not only in the current learning context but also in future contexts, the importance of learning transfer is highly recognized by educators. In this presentation, the learning transfer climate faced by a group of nursing undergraduates in a Hong Kong university will be reported, so as to reflect if there is a favorable condition for them to apply the academic writing skills learnt in an English-for-general-academic-purposes (EGAP) course to three of the content courses in the nursing discipline.
