    Dialectical thinking is not an attempt to bring disparate values together in an arrangement of shared values. It is the act of recognizing an individual as the holder, creator, and regulator of their own deeply held values, and to then focus on transforming our own understanding rather than solving conflicts.

    Learning Transfer:
    Dialectical Thinking and Cognitive Development.
    Robert Kegan explains the nature of dialectical thinking as one of the highest form of consciousness.
    He recognizes that we live in a day where systems of knowledge are susceptible to being used to gain advantage and maintain power.
    That power resides in an expectation of our outer behavior.

    Application of Learning Transfer: In order to increase learning transfer, teachers need to match instrucion and assessment to students variou thinking styles.For example, thought-based questioning will support judicail and legislative thinking styles. An assessment that includes projects that involve analysis is most compatible with judicial styles.

    Theory:Learning Transfer:
    Problem Based Learning (PBL) and Inquiry Learning (IL) learning transfer occurs when students engage in complex tasks that would otherwise be beyond their current abilities.
    PBL and IL does provide considerable guidance to students from their instructors.
    PBL and IL employ extensive use of scaffolding, as well as addressing other important goals of education that such as, content knowledge, epistemic practices, and soft skills that include collaboration and self-directed learning.

    Adult learning is problem-centered rather than content-oriented.
    Learning Transfer:
    The Assumptions and Principles of Andragogy are all intended to promote learning transfer, especially and specifically with adults. Andragogy is specifically made to identify key characteristics of effective adult learning, and places concerted emphasis on adults as self-directed learners who are responsible and accountable for their own quality and quantity of learning. While seeing adult learners as self-directed and important participants in the entire learning process- from planning to evaluation-the theory also acknowledges their need for explanation(s) of the need and also the be able to understand the (immediate) value of a learning experience.

    How Theories can be used to Promote LearningLearning Transfer:
    The 3 Domains of learning objectives can be used to classify the type of learning intended to take place, and what kind of instruction and learning activities should be used to best promote learning within the respective domains. The levels (and reasoning, explanations) of the Taxonomy serve as a guide for the desired progression of learning transfer. The Taxonomy asserts that each of the steps is distinct and irreplaceable in the learning transfer process.

    Value is "a function not of whim nor purely of social construction, but a quality situated in events".
    Learning Transfer:
    Many learners find that learning by physically performing the task or action related to the learning objective is the best way for them to have the learning transfer, to be able to then apply what they were able to gain actual experience doing themselves outside of the classroom environment and promotes their ability to apply their learning under different circumstances and facing alternate factors affecting their performance of the principle(s) taught.
