European Research on Corporate Training.
Lowyck, Joost; Elen, Jan
The state of corporate training research conducted by education departments at universities throughout Europe was examined. The study, which was based on a literature search and limited survey, focused on research concerned with the design, development, and evaluation of training and research on learning processes in corporate settings. Among the review's main findings were the following: (1) studies of the relationship between educational level and employment are conducted at the supranational level by the European Centre for Vocational Training and are often conducted at the national or regional levels; (2) at the organization level, most studies focus on describing/analyzing important determinants of training decisions within organizations; (3) some researchers concentrate on specific learning programs or type of programs; (4) only a limited number of researchers examine learners and learning in corporate settings; (5) studies conducted in the design phase of training generally elaborate procedures for designing instruction and/or describe the variables affecting the design process; (6) the development/delivery phase of training has received much attention, whereas evaluation of training is barely studied; and (7) most studies are descriptive, and only a few test specific interventions.
