Making Learning Stick
IN THIS SUMMARY
In Making Learning Stick, author Barbara Carnes presents a dynamic guide for taking skills learned during training and transferring them into the workplace. Transfer of training is defined as the application of job knowledge, skills, and attitudes learned and the subsequent maintenance and use of them over a period of time. Empirical research studies have identified certain factors that play a significant role in the transfer of training, which can be grouped into three key categories: learner characteristics, organizational environment and support, and training design. These factors can be utilized and combined into techniques to integrate education (TIEs), which are methods designed to make learning stick.
