Transfer (of learning) research can be loosely framed as the study of the dependency of human conduct, learning or performance on prior experience. The notion was originally introduced as transfer of practice by Edward Thorndike and Robert S. Woodworth (1901)[1]. They explored how individuals would transfer learning in one context to another context that shared similar characteristics.
