Transfer of Learning. Symposium 14. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on transfer of learning consists of four presentations. "The Influence of the Implementation of a Transfer Management Intervention on Transfer of Training" (Patricia R. Saylor, Marijke T. Kehrhahn) reports a study that evaluated effectiveness of transfer management interventions provided by a change facilitator in establishing a positive transfer climate and promoting achievement of transfer goals set by middle school teachers. "Learning Strategies: A Key to Training Effectiveness" (Paula Willyard, Gary J. Conti) describes a study of learning strategies of 456 adults that found a connection between the image of the organization and the type of learners attracted to it and identified learning characteristics that trainers can use to improve learning. "An Examination of Learning Transfer System Characteristics Across Organizational Settings" (Elwood F. Holton III et al.) discusses a study that compared transfer systems across three organization types, eight different organizations, and nine different types of training and found they are significantly different across organizational types, organizations, and training types. "Adult Learning and the Internet" (Gary J. Conti, Anne A. Ghost Bear) focuses on a study that describes learning strategies used by eBay users and finds that learners using critical thinking skills are attracted to the Internet, Internet use leads to differing attitudes about skill and self concept changes, and learning strategy groups approach learning on the Internet very differently. All four papers include substantial bibliographies. (YLB)
