The Learning-Transfer Evaluation Model (LTEM) is an eight-level model designed to help organizations build more effective trainings and validate learning results. LTEM goes beyond traditional measures of achievement — such as attendance, attention, participation, or completion of training — and emphasizes knowledge, decision-making, task competence, and application of learning in the worksite. The Epidemiology Workforce Branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention administers on-the-job training fellowships, where knowledge application is required. In this discussion, we will explore merits of LTEM and practical strategies to measure and monitor learning transfer using LTEM. We will discuss how we apply LTEM to training evaluations and discuss plans to measure learning transfer in our programs. Participants will be invited to share their feedback, how they measure learning transfer, and how they envision using LTEM in their work.
