Improving the Knowledge Transfer Skills of Industrial Technology Students
- Kevin L. Devine (Illinois State University)
Knowledge transfer is the ability to apply information learned in one context to new contexts. As such, knowledge transfer is a primary goal of educators in virtually every discipline. English teachers, for example, do not teach reading skills merely to allow students to perform well on their exams; rather, students are taught reading skills so they can read newspapers and other written materials during their everyday life. Similarly, we in Industrial Technology would like our graduates to be able to apply knowledge gained in our classrooms and laboratories to a wide range of equipment in industry.
