Transfer of Learning Transfer refers to knowledge being applied in new ways, in new situations, or in familiar situations with different content. Transfer also explains how prior learning affects subsequent learning. Transfer is involved in new learning when students retrieve their prior relevant knowledge and experiences (National Research Council, 2000). The cognitive capability for transfer is important, because without it all learning would be situation specific, and much instructional time would be spent reteaching skills in different contexts.

By observing others, people acquire knowledge, rules, skills, strategies, beliefs, and attitudes. Individuals also learn from models the usefulness and appropriateness of behaviors and the consequences of modeled behaviors, and they act in accordance with beliefs about their capabilities and the expected outcomes of their actions. (Schunk, 2016) It would be best to better associate your observation to those individuals who are successful opposed to those who have derogatory opinions about others because this does not help one do their job successfully.
Information Processing Retrieval depends on the manner of encoding. According to the encoding specificity hypothesis (Brown & Craik, 2000; Thomson & Tulving, 1970), the manner in which knowledge is encoded determines which retrieval cues will effectively activate that knowledge. In this view, the best retrieval occurs when retrieval cues match those present during learning (Baddeley, 1998; Suprenant & Neath, 2009).
