As companies increasingly turn to eLearning to build critical workplace skills, learners must do more than just understand content. They must be able to apply it in a workplace that is often more nuanced than any training. Designing for that kind of transfer must be intentional and often can seem overwhelming in the face of limited resources and looming deadlines. This session will explore how to promote transfer by designing interactions framed within the context of workplace applications. We’ll look at a range of examples from presentational screens to scenario-based activities and offer insights for efficiently building context to help your learners create connections that will enable them to successfully apply what they have learned. To expand your design palette, join us for a different perspective on how to increase learner engagement and skill acquisition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe why we should be designing for transfer.
  • Explain how context promotes the transfer of skills.
  • Identify ways to design with context and transfer in mind.
