Abstract: Should the construct `motivation to transfer' used inhuman resource development and management research be also used in learning research? The current study revisited motivation to transfer on a sample of 128 participants of occupational health training. Confirmatory factor analysis and partial least square-sbased path modeling were used to test the hypothesized dimensions and relationships among variables inlcuding social and affective cues on training transfer. Based on a combination of the theory of planned behavior, expectancy theory, and self-determination theory, we validated three dimensions of transfer motivation: autonomous motivation to transfer, controlled motivation to transfer, and intentions to transfer. Results indicate that autonomous motivation was affected by attitudes toward training content and utility reactions; controlled motivation was affected by utility reactions, supervisory support,and social norms. Intentions to transfer mediated the effecst of autonomous motivation on transfer three months after training. Implications of a multidisciplinary perspective combining learning sciences and human resource development are discussed.
