Discussion Week 2: Understanding Learning (20 points)
As your text suggest, if there is no transfer of knowledge, the training has failed. Therefore, it is good to know the different types of learning theories to get a sense of how adults learn to evaluate the employee’s change in behavior resulting from the training. Chapter three, in your textbook, discusses the various types of learning theories that relate to motivation, knowledge, skills and abilities, and a trainee’s environment. This week, I would like for you to explore more on how adults learn.
Discuss the following:
- Suggest how training can be designed to motivate learning and accommodate trainee differences. Use an example to explain your response.
- Then provide recommendations for how you can involve trainees in the process of learning. Provide specific examples for your response.
