Amping Up Transfer of Learning

Review your agency’s strategies to transfer knowledge from the classroom to agency practice.

Assess strategies from the perspectives of timeframe and agency role: before, during, and after training, as well as supervisor, trainee, and trainer.

Identify strengths to sustain and celebrate.

With larger agencies, it may not be possible to assess or conduct interventions to remedy insufficient transfer of learning strategies. In that case, review the strategies from the perspective of your span of influence. For any deficits, develop strategies to strengthen and improve the transfer of learning.

See Worksheet 3b.A1 for a more detailed explanation of driving and restraining forces related to transfer of learning.
