Abstract

© 2018 Grupo de Investigacion FORCE. All rights reserved. The transfer of training is, together with the factors involved, one of the challenges that universities have to face. Focusing on the teacher training in ICT, in this work we analyse the role of individual and training design factors on transfer. A cross-sectional correlation investigation was performed, participating 155 teachers from three Catalan universities who had been trained in ICT. As far as the training design, the results show that a training designed according to the real context of the participant is the biggest influential factor on transfer. Also, the results suggests that the capacity of the participant to integrate technology, pedagogy and content (TPACK) is an influential factor on transfer. The technological competence, which is similar to instrumental ability, obtained the 4th position in the correlation analysis. This paper concludes with recommendations in order to facilitate the transfer of teacher training in ICT.
