Abstract: Learning in academia does not automatically transfer to working life. In this presentation I discuss factors that influence transfer that are related to teaching, ways and goals of learning, features of the academic domain and labour market. Two message are formulated: 1) Problems / cases etc. are NOT just some illustrations Key is how students process the case / problem, which depends on: (Students’ perceptions and motivation) Authenticity Design of the case / problem Instruction / clear, standard processing strategy Reflection on process and outcome 2) Cases / problems: Authenticity; leading to intended learning goals; stimulating critical thinking; self-direction, etc. Cycles, strategies and structures Provide and support; make explicit and train Theories Give attention to how theories are (un)related (philosophical schools, domain types, problem types) Stimulate reflection
