HRD Effectiveness and Transfer of Learning. Symposium.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on human resource development (HRD) effectiveness and transfer of learning. "Factors Affecting Transfer of Training in Thailand" (Siriporn Yamnill, Gary N. McLean) discusses how the Learning Transfer System Inventory was validated in Thailand by administering it to 1,029 employers and analyzing their responses to identify factors affecting transfer of training and compare transfer systems. "Characteristics Expanding HRD Effectiveness" (A.A.M. [Ida] Wognum), Bernard P. Veldkamp, Wendy E. Ankersmit, J. Annechien van de Lagemaat) reports how data from seven surveys were analyzed to determine the relative impact of the following categories of characteristics on HRD programs' effectiveness: setting HRD goals; stakeholder involvement; HRD programs' form; and HRD programs' content field. "Expanding the Transfer of Training Domain of Structured On-the-Job Training" (Chan Lee, Jin Hyuk Kim, Ronald L. Jacobs) proposes that structured on-the-job training can be used in both near transfer of training (training whose content and outcomes related to one work task and whose design is based on specific concepts, procedures, problem solving, and decision making) and far transfer of training (training whose content and outcomes relate to a set of related work tasks and whose design is based on general concepts, broad principles, problem-solving rules, and decision-making rules). All papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
