Learning Needs for Virtual Workers

One of the greatest impacts COVID-19 has had on the global community involves the historical shift to virtual employment. Although tasks remain largely the same, the implementation and ways in which employees interact and learn have greatly shifted. As a result, many have had to fend for themselves learning how to thrive (or possibly survive) in a potentially unfamiliar environment. Join us as Rothwell & Associates provides a closer look at the learning needs of virtual workers.

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 

- Summarize the impacts a new virtual workforce has had on employees

- Explain best practices for training virtual workers 

- List how to measure learning based on virtually-acquired skills

The Virtual Learner and Knowledge Transfer

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
