  Annotation: This report from the National Institute of Corrections examines the challenges from technology and globalization facing corrections learning and performance as society moves into the 21st century.
Abstract: Key findings in this report on the challenges that corrections learning and performance face from technology and globalization include the following: empirical data on adult and workplace learning should be used to drive development and practice; while 60-80 percent of learning takes place outside of formal contexts, the bulk of staff development resources are spent on formal learning; design, learner characteristics, context, content, and motivational and engagement strategies need to be considered to achieve desired learning outcomes; quality of design rather than delivery method is the most important factor in knowledge retention; and blended and collaborative learning are the most effective means of distance learning. This report is the first in a series of publications aimed at stimulating discussion about the future of learning and performance in corrections. The report focuses on the challenges that corrections learning and performance face as a result of rapid changes to technology and globalization. Different sections of the report provide extensive review of learning research in the areas of theory, learners, learning organizations, instructional design, program design, delivery methods and modalities, learning transfer, and program assessment. The final section of the paper discusses how changes can be implemented in corrections learning and performance. Figures, references, and appendixes
