Transfer of training--which is sometimes called transfer of learning--is the process of ensuring that off-the-job training translates into on-the-job behavioral change (near transfer). However, it is more difficult to measure the indirect effects, such as intuitive flash of insight about a new idea (far transfer). This webinar will differentiate near and far transfer of learning; describe ways to design virtual training that ensures both near and far transfer of learning; and explore ways to spark innovation in the virtual learner.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Define and provide examples of near transfer and far transfer of training/learning
• Describe typical ways of designing virtual training and how they may be adapted to ensure both near and far transfer
• Exploring new ways to initiate far transfer and thereby sparking innovation by training/talent development efforts
• Examine how near and far transfer of virtual learning can be measured
