People learn more effectively through repeated exposure to a message. Research demonstrates that repetition makes the information appear more valid, while also increasing perceived agreement with and acceptance of the message. Frequency of exposure enhances persuasion and makes information more accessible in our memories, causing it to seem more familiar when it is encountered again.
High-involvement and technology-based approaches to training are powerful methods for transferring tacit and complex knowledge to individuals. Use of these techniques by both businesses and business schools is on the rise because they are more effective than traditional training media, such as presentations, videos and textbooks. Research indicates that active involvement leverages our inherent motivation to learn, while enhancing our ability to process complex information by connecting it to real-life experiences. Additionally, training experiences that help us move from superficial encounters with others to mutual dialog establish strong bonds between individuals and deepen our understanding of each other.
Feedback is a vital component of any learning process. While feedback must convey the accuracy of the learner’s response (e.g. correct vs. incorrect), research indicates that it is even more beneficial for the feedback message to include additional information that fosters learning. Adding an explanation to feedback on “answer accuracy” enables us to transfer that knowledge to new, untested situations.
High performing companies understand the importance of giving employees recognition and rewards to validate and demonstrate the value of outstanding work. Research indicates that this positive reinforcement enhances employee behavior and leads to performance improvement, and that contingent rewards and recognition have a powerful impact on learning new behaviors. Rewards that enhance feelings of trust and provide recognition help raise employees’ awareness of company support.
Enabling individuals to participate in learning anonymously provides a safe method for voicing their authentic viewpoints while avoiding direct confrontation. Research indicates that allowing group members to keep their identities private helps them learn more by increasing their willingness to participate in discussions, while reducing the effects of peer pressure and interpersonal relationships. Facilitating frank and productive discussions is a key goal of collaborative learning, and respondent anonymity in group discussions enables this objective more readily than face-to-face interactions.
