New Research Explores Learner Preferences in Corporate Training

Research report, “What Learners Want: Strategies for Training Delivery” explores questions relevant to corporate training and guidance for learning and development professionals

Raleigh, NC – October 18, 2018 – Corporate training programs can be more effective when training delivery strategies are aligned with the learners’ preferences. A new research report from Training Industry, Inc. explores these learner preferences, focusing on how learners want to learn and the match between their preferences and what organizations are actually using to deliver training.

“Today’s learners have choices,” Amy DuVernet, Ph.D., director of training manager development at Training Industry, Inc. and the researcher and author of the report. “They can find information about how to best perform their jobs from a number of sources. It’s critical that training professionals, and the training function, acknowledge this reality by providing learning and development in ways that learners want to engage.”

Previous research by Training Industry has explored the modern learning system, including the importance of training modality to learning outcomes. This new research elaborates on this component of effective training by exploring the impact of meeting those preferences in a training program. It also makes recommendations on how to choose training methods based on the intersection of how learners want to learn and the modalities that are most effective.

What Learners Want: Strategies for Training Delivery” addresses the following questions in the context of corporate training:

  • What do learners want?
  • What do learners think is most effective?
  • How are we delivering training?
  • Are learners getting what they want?
  • Do learner preferences matter?

The research report, “What Learners Want: Strategies for Training Delivery,” is available for purchase online for $495. A report preview and summary is available at no cost at https://trainingindustry.com/research-report-what-learners-want-strategies-for-training-delivery

Don’t Forget – There is Always APA!

APA Submissions are now open (http://convention.apa.org/2019-call)! Didn’t get everything submitted for SIOP that you were hoping? Have projects that are still in preliminary stages or where not all your data are collected yet? Have smaller student projects that need a presentation outlet? Submit them to APA as a Division 14 member! APA 2019 is in Chicago (August 8th-11th). If you attended SIOP 2018, then you know Chicago is a great place to visit – so why not come back for APA? Collaborative programs are due October 12th, and regular submissions (e.g., posters, papers) are due December 3rd. More information is available on APA’s convention website (http://convention.apa.org/2019-call) and/or feel free to contact Clair Kueny (kuenyc@mst.edu, Div 14 APA Program Chair) with any questions.

Collaborative Programming at APA

APA is encouraging collaborative programming from all divisions. Collaborative programs are cohesive sessions developed by contributors from more than one area of psychology (i.e., more than one division), and place an emphasis on innovative formatting and audience interaction. Collaborative programs can be either 1 or 2 hours of programming. This is a great way to present on any interdisciplinary topics you may be working on! It also helps Division 14 have more programming time at the conference. Some divisions have already inquired about collaborative programming with Division 14, specifically on the following topics:

  • The history of unions and union/management relations – particularly as they developed in the Chicago-area
  • The utility and application of wellness programs across a variety of settings (including organizations, the military, and clinical settings)
  • Neuroscience in organizations and the military, including the ethics of using neuroscience in these environments
  • Non-residential parents (e.g., parents in the armed forces, working long-distance, working shift-work/odd hours, etc.) and their work/life dynamics

If you are interested in contributing to one of these topics or learning more about collaborative programming for APA, please contact Clair Kueny (kuenyc@mst.edu, Div 14 APA Program Chair). Also, contact Clair if you have your own idea for a possible collaborative program and need help finding psychologists from other divisions to contribute. The deadline to submit a collaborative program is October 12th (more information is available at APA’s website: http://convention.apa.org/2019-call/collaborative-programs).

We are doing a meta-analysis on job crafting interventions and are looking for unpublished studies.
