This easy-to-use guide and resource details 20 low-cost techniques to integrate education (TIEs), ranging from use of podcasts to involvement of training buddies. Serving as both a step-by-step guide and an ongoing resource, this book provides sample forms and examples, plus a complementary website with additional materials. Your training efforts can evolve into a way of life for your trainees, and your organization will reap the long-term results that indicate successful transfer of training.
