Dana Driscoll and colleagues (English Department) from the Writing Transfer Project team had an article published in the most recent issue of Composition Forum (35, Spring 2017).
The article is titled “Down the Rabbit Hole: Challenges and Methodological Recommendations in Researching Learning-Related Dispositions.” The article explores how learning-related dispositions such as self-effiicacy, persistence, attribution, value and self-regulation offer key methodological challenges in at least four areas: cultural, temporal, psychological, and conceptual. These challenges are explored in light of recent scholarship on writing transfer and long-term writing development.
