Two conceptual frames were used in this study to investigate integration of learning: self-authorship and transfer of learning. Three distinct types of integration of learning emerged from analyzing the data: (a) Connection , the discovery of a similarity between ideas which themselves remain distinctive; (b) Application, the use of knowledge from one context in another; and (c) Synthesis, the creation of new knowledge by combining two or more insights. These three categories comprised the main microsteps of integration of learning.CHAPTER III: METHODOLOGY This chapter details the methodological underpinnings of the study. ... study will explore how integration of learning develops in college, focusing on the changes that occur during the first undergraduate year.
