Training and development involves planned activities directed at enhancing the learning of job-relevant knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes by employees to improve on-the-job performance and job behaviour, and to enhance the overall effectiveness of organizations. In this course, students will learn about the training and development function and how it fits within the larger organization and environmental context, as well as specific topics such as needs analysis, training design, training methods, delivery, transfer, and the evaluation of training programs. The course focuses on training theory and research as well as the application of training in organizations.
