One of our ATD Greater Las Vegas members is seeking an organization to partner with for a study on workplace learning.
Elham Arabi is pursuing her PhD in Interactions and Media Sciences at UNLV. Her background is in instructional design with some years of teaching. She holds a master’s degree in instructional technology, and has worked as a learning and development specialist both in corporate and educational settings. She has designed and developed online and blended courses as well as professional development trainings. Her current courses include a considerable number of educational psychology, behavioral sciences & technology, learning & technology, and cognitive sciences, with some units in human-computer interaction, gamification, and virtual reality.
For this study, she intends to use a learning transfer evaluation model (LTEM), developed by Will Thalheimer. This model will evaluate the existing training of a company and whether or not it results in learning transfer to work. In this study, designed-based research allows for the investigation of all variables which could lead to or inhibit learning transfer. With that, evidence-based suggestions on how to improve the learning transfer factors, such as training design, training material, learner characteristics, and work environment, will be provided.
As this is a validation study, the higher the number of participants, the better. This study is not restricted to any type of company demographics.
If your company is interested in partnering for this research, or for further information, please contact Elham Arabi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
