Learning transfer is defined as putting learning to work in a way that improves performance. This interactive session will introduce the Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning that ensure improved performance is achieved. Participants will have opportunities to apply the principles and tools in a series of exercises and discussions. Real-world examples will be provided. We will show how the Six Disciplines support the ISPI standards and allow performance improvement professionals to put these standards into practice.
Further, so we can “Do Learning Transfer” instead of just “Talking About Learning Transfer” this session will be even more valuable if you bring a current project you are working on that includes a learning component important for people to transfer what they learn in a way that improves their performance. For those who choose to do so, your project can become your practice field to immediately put to work what you learn during this session.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Define learning transfer as putting learning to work in a way that improves performance
- Define the Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning that insure improved performance is achieved
- Apply the above principles and tools given real-world examples that will be provided
- Demonstrate how the Six Disciplines support ISPI standards and allow performance improvement professionals to put these standards into practice.
- Practice Doing Learning Transfer on a current project you are working on with a learning component
