Transfer of Learning.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on transfer of learning. "Factors Affecting Transfer of Training in an Industrial Setting" (Reid A. Bates, Elwood F. Holton III, Dian L. Seyler) identified seven transfer climate variables that predicted performance and three interpersonal variables that predicted performance ratings. Results reported in "Development and Validation of a Generalized Learning Transfer Climate Questionnaire: A Preliminary Report" (Elwood F. Holton III, Reid A. Bates, Michael Leimbach) support all but one construct of the Learning Transfer Questionnaire. "Training Effects on Productivity and Work Quality after the Introduction of New Technologies in the Organization--An Exploratory Study" (Constantine J. Kontoghiorghes) concludes that a work environment adhering to sociotechnical principles facilitates training transfer and productivity and quality improvements. "Climate for Training Transfer: A Progress Review and Recommendations for Further Research" (Gary L. May, Barbara A. Reilly) updates a 1988 literature review to determine what research gaps still exist. (KC)
