1. Learning about Transfer of Knowledge

Transfer of knowledge is the process of constructing new knowledge by applying your prior learning to a new context. The process involves making connections between course concepts and how the topics and issues relate to a variety of sectors, organizations, and occupations.

Envision YU resources focused on the transfer capacity will support you in identifying relevance by guiding you through the process of making connections between your coursework and your interest, competencies, and the world of work. As you work through the different Envision YU resources, you will have opportunities to engage in three methods of self-directed research:

  1. Online career-focused research
  2. Informational gathering through networking
  3. Organizational research and analysis
