Abstract or Summary
  • Investing in leadership development for natural resource professionals increasingly means linking learning for participants to performance for their employer. We were challenged to develop meaningful learning outcomes and their assessment, which included making the learning ‘real’ for the participants and their employer. Working collaboratively with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, we combined an outcomes-based approach with problem-based learning in an 8-day Ecological Sustainability Leadership Program for foresters, biologists, and other public service professionals. An important element of the curriculum was the transfer-to-work action plan. For participants, their plan results from reflection, discerning priorities, and making commitments to take action. From the employers view, their action plan encourages and promotes explicit transfer of learning outcomes to work. From an educator’s perspective, their plan allows assessment of the suitability of the learning outcomes and our success in helping participants acquire them. Our presentation overviews this leadership program, key elements of curriculum design, along with assessment, giving particular attention to the transfer to work online tools.
