BoosterLearning: The Holy Grail for All Forms of Training

1,979 views

Published on

As trainers, we need to ask hard questions of ourselves. How much do our employees benefit from our training? Are they becoming effective leaders? Are they working smarter, and making healthy choices? In short, is our training having a lasting effect on employees?

We all know that no employee learns from a single exposure to a training. Furthermore, people forget 50% of what they learn within an hour and 70% within a day. It is no wonder training seldom results in transfer to the workplace.

In this engaging session, Professor Art Kohn begins by describing scientific research demonstrating how to produce sustainable learning and behavior change. He then reviews four techniques that companies can use to overcome the forgetting curve. These techniques include booster quizzing, social elaboration, strategic coaching, and depth of processing.

Dr. Kohn will describe case studies where organizations have significantly increased their corporate ROI by instituting a systematic booster program.
