Course description

Available for 1.0 elective credit in the CACE program.

Only offered online.

This course provides students the opportunity to investigate the critical components of the learning transfer process, and to get at the heart of improving performance and contributing to organizational results through changing behaviour. Learning transfer will be analyzed at the organizational, manager, trainer, and trainee levels. An understanding of how organizational contextual factors may impede or support transfer, and influence behaviour will be developed. Students will also examine how transfer considerations influences the adult instructional design cycle (i.e. ADDIE) from needs assessment to evaluation. Additionally, the importance of building business partnerships to gain clarity on expectations and promote actions to boost transfer will be explored. Students will leave with strategies and tools that will help improve training’s impact on organizational performance.
