  title={Knowledge Transfer},
  author={Leigh Thompson and Elizabeth Ruth Wilson and Elaine Wethington},
Controversy regarding the nature and frequency of knowledge transfer has received significant attention formore than a century, and this debate has sparked advances in our theoretical understanding of transfer as well as educational practices designed to promote it. We review the classical cognitive approach to studying transfer and highlight several important critiques of that approach regarding issues of context, assessment, and individual differences. These critiques have pushed research to…
