Professor Dickman is the Director of the Writing Program and an Assistant Professor of English in the Department of Languages and Communication. His primary research interest is in transfer, or the phenomenon of successfully applying knowledge or skills learned in one context to new situations and contexts. This simple idea that lies at the heart of education has a big impact on how we should approach the classroom and the curriculum.

Dr. Dickman is the author of a series of open-source, Creative-Common licensed instructional videos on understanding writing fundamentals. The videos in this series are informed by research in the learning sciences, multimedia learning principles, and transfer. Follow this link to view the videos.
