Join Carl and Fred as they discuss how to transfer your knowledge to other people, and conversely, how to support knowledge transfer from others.
- How do you transfer knowledge from one person to another?
- What are the mechanisms for knowledge transfer?
- The field of reliability influences management and engineering
- Remote versus onsite meetings and teaching
- Reading a script does not transfer knowledge
- Recognizing the knowledge gap is first step to transferring knowledge
- Use of questioning can be a great tool to address confusion
- Telling without trying does not necessarily transfer knowledge
- Deliberate practice is necessary for gaining the skills associated with knowledge

- “There may be some question in the room, let’s explore”
- Even students who are looking for “check box” can learn with the right instruction techniques
- Knowledge transfer is a two-way street
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques to field data analysis approaches.
Good instruction engages students and can create temporary confusion, which is a natural part of the learning process:
