Transfer of Learning.
This document contains four symposium papers on transfer of learning. In "Learning Transfer in a Social Service Agency: Test of an Expectancy Model of Motivation" (Reid A. Bates) structural equation modeling is used to test the validity of a valence-instrumentality-expectancy approach to motivation to transfer learning. "The Relationship between Learner Utility Reactions and Predictors of Learning Transfer: Implications for Evaluation" (Wendy E.A. Ruona, Michael Leimbach, Elwood F. Holton III) explores the relationship between learner utility reactions and predictors of learning transfer in light of new research on transfer of learning. "Mixed Methods: The Value of the Qualitative Perspective in Transfer of Training Research" (Gary L. May) provides an example of how a qualitative method, namely, analysis of data from semistructured interviews through conceptually ordered matrices, can illuminate quantitative data gathered from the same setting. "Theories Supporting Transfer of Training" (Siriporn Yamnill, Gary N. McLean) reviews the theories and conceptual frameworks needed to describe three factors affecting transfer of training: training inputs (trainee characteristics, training design, and work environment); training outputs (learning and retention); and conditions of training transfer (generalization and maintenance of training).
