Central to any training and development initiative is the extent to which learners actually engage in effective learning. Effective learning requires much more than the ability to perform particular learning process elements; it should be concerned with the learning of organized “wholes” of knowledge. In addition, the process should require that information is properly applied – in other words, effective learning needs to achieve transference of knowledge from the artificiality of a training course to practical application in the workplace.
