Getting creative with ways to transfer learning back to the workplace

R equals e to the power of minus t over s.

Or, to put it another way, people forget about 80% of what they learn on a training course.

That might not be exactly true, Ebbinghaus’s research and “curve of forgetting” equation is not the most rigorous of science, but it’s probably true-ish and that’s good enough for this podcast!

In this episode I talk again to Roger Greenaway, an expert in experiential and innovative training methodologies. We talk about what “learning transfer” really means, and then discuss some unusual and creative ways of designing training courses so that learning transfer is more likely to occur.
