Typescript lecture titled Transfer of Training at the University Level, Mar 1944

Identifier: Coll-1310/3/1/4

Scope and Contents

Thomson discusses how qualities and skills gained at university can be transferred to students' working lives as well as their roles as good citizens. He discusses the extent to which such transfer is possible, citing the results of psychological experiments of learning.

Thomson discusses the importance of understanding, not only between students of various disciplines, but also between the student and those from other walks of life. He stresses the importance that the specialist be a scholar, rather than merely a repetitive worker, and discusses the conflicting needs of specialism and wider study.

The lecture is incomplete.
