Welche Rolle spielt E-Learning hinsichtlich der Förderung des Lerntransfers in der betrieblichen Weiterbildung? Eine Betrachtung mithilfe der konstruktivistischen Gestaltungsprinzipien

  • A study by the Bertelsmann Stiftung concludes that companies invested around €11.1 billion in training their employees in 2015. This is due to our evolution into a knowledge society, where knowledge represents the competitive advantage for companies. However, in order to be able to benefit from these training investments, a learning transfer must take place on the part of the employees. Constructivist learning theory aims to counteract the lack of learning transfer. Thus, constructivist design principles in the learning environment can make it possible to foster learning transfer. The latest developments in e-learning, such as the use of Web 2.0 instruments or mobile learning, increase the potential to support constructivist design principles and consequently learning transfer. Using qualitative data from 11 semi-structured interviews with professionals in the field of e-learning, this study explores the role of e-learning in transfer of training. The results indicated that e-learning plays an important role in supporting three of the five constructivist principles and this technological support is likely to become even more important in the future. However, regarding the two other constructivist principles, which both concern the social exchange, the results show that employees still prefer a personal instead of virtual exchange for learning purposes.
