Designing Training for Learning Transfer
During this session we will discuss aspects of how the brain works when learning and how we can maximize the likelihood of learning transfer (application on the job or in life) based on design of the event. This will be an interactive session where participants will reflect on their own learning experiences. We will engage in a few activities to illustrate the concepts.
Objectives: After attending this presentation, participants will:
(1) modify training events to maximize potential for participants to transfer the new knowledge and skills to the work environment
(2) analyze various methods and techniques to select the best for a particular audience and context
(3) discuss aspect of how learning occurs and how design can impact this either positively or negatively
