Transfer of Learning. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 1998.]
This document contains four papers from a symposium on transfer of learning. "The Effect of a Mastery Practice Design on Learning and Transfer in Behavior Modeling Training of Supervisory Listening Skills" (Gary L. May) reports on a case-control study that drew from research in the cognitive sciences on complex skill acquisition to create a mastery practice design for interpersonal skills training. "Training Transfer as It Relates to the Instructional System and the Broader Work Environment" (Constantine Kontoghiorghes) presents an exploratory study in which the following variables were identified as being among the most important factors in facilitating transfer of training: measurement of trainee knowledge before and immediately after training; supervisory support and encouragement for application of new skills and knowledge; and intrinsic rewards. A study indicating the feasibility of implementing a high-performance, learning-oriented approach to organizing and managing in the low-wage service sector is discussed in "The Organizational Context of Learning and Performance in Four Retail Food Markets" (Martha A. Gephart). "Development and Validation of a Generalized Learning Transfer Climate Questionnaire: Final Report" (Elwood F. Holton III, Wendy E.A. Ruona, Michael Leimbach) describes a process of construct validation of an expanded learning transfer climate instrument through common factor analysis. (MN)
