Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT)
Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), these case studies describe work done by practitioners to disseminate knowledge. The academic study of KTT recognises that sharing learning is much more than simply moving information from ‘A’ to ‘B’; the successful transfer of knowledge and technology relies on people communicating effectively. Therefore, these projects, drawn from across the FE and skills sector, present a range of strategies for enabling productive collaboration between people from different organisations and backgrounds in order to share new knowledge and technology to benefit STEM teaching and learning, including.
Case studies look at:
• In-house CPD events
• Regional collaboration
• Curriculum development
• Employer engagement
• Industry visits and placements for lecturers.
