ATDps: February 2019 Seattle Chapter Meeting
Learning Transfer Strategies: Supercharge Your Training
It is not unusual for training to be designed without much thought to how an organization will evaluate learning impact. Incorporating Learning Transfer Strategies into instructional design supercharges your training. It provides ways of evaluating training success and making sure desired behavior changes stick. How much of the training you deliver is quickly forgotten and never applied? This has little to do with what happens before or during training delivery and everything to do with what happens afterwards. This interactive session draws on the group knowledge to identify why you want to use Learning Transfer Strategies, what they are, and how the effectiveness of them (and associated training) can be measured. Participants will have an opportunity to identify Learning Transfer Strategies they can incorporate into their own training initiatives and ways to measure the success of related behavior change.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Define Learning Transfer Strategies
- Discuss the benefits of using Learning Transfer Strategies
- Decide when the use of Learning Transfer Strategies is most appropriate
- Identify different Learning Transfer Strategies they can add to their training initiatives
- Determine different ways of measuring the effectiveness of Learning Transfer Strategies and associated training.

Her current focus is on creating effective training, delivering great workshops, and coaching executives and others to set goals, take action, and achieve more. She gets a real kick out of seeing clients experience that “aha” moment when they realize a new approach produces concrete results.
