There are more learning theories than we discussed this week. Research one that is not too popular; write a summary of it; and tell us how you would apply it in developing training.
Question 3 (1 page)
This week's tool is an action plan for transferring learning. It was developed by Interhealth International, which also developed the interactive transfer of learning matrix mentioned in the Required Reading-Transfer of Learning. The first attachment is an example of a completed action plan; the second is a copy of the action plan in a Word format that can be completed using a computer.
Think about training that you have taken. If you had completed this action plan before, during, or after the training, do you think your transfer of learning would have been positively affected? Would you recommend this tool to T&D professionals?
