Knowledge Transfer and the Development of Educational Policy.
Rossmiller, Richard A.
Knowledge transfer is considered essential to the long term health and survival of universities. The strategy outlined in this paper calls for institutions of higher education to develop policies concerning the transfer of knowledge and technology and to tailor such policies to potential users. It discusses types of knowledge to be transferred, potential users of that knowledge, and the role of the university in the procedure. The paper concludes that policy makers should identify the circumstances under which the institution should take a proactive or reactive stance in the transfer of knowledge to potential users. Knowledge transfer strategies that are in accord with institutional policies and that attend to differences in the type of knowledge and in the nature of prospective users can then be designed, tested, and implemented.
