Transfer of training is a critical issue for HRD in the corporate sector. However, research indicates that no more than 20 % of corporate investment in training results in performance improvement or transfer of training to the workplace. Researchers have claimed instructional strategies or theories for enhancing transfer are not integrated into the training design. Now blended learning is expected to serve as an alternative to traditional training for transfer. Particularly, for blended training, identification of unique factors affecting transfer in the environment as well as the verification of the factors studied in the traditional training setting is required. This study utilizes the conceptual model of transfer distance by Holton and Baldwin (2003) as a framework for understanding transfer as a process and for locating transfer factors. For categorizing training design-related factors into instructional phases, Merrill's First Principles of Instruction will be utilized.
