Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in the Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
This study examines the differences between a near versus far transfer of training approach and their impact on learning. A post-test only experimental design was used to collect data from supervisors attending a training session on coaching. Results showed differences in coaching confidence for trainees who were trained using a near training transfer approach versus trainees who were trained using a far training transfer approach. Discussions and implications for research and practice are included. (Contains 9 tables.)
