Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on continuing education (CE) opportunities offered to working adults. First, we examine the antecedents to participation in CE programs, considering both individual differences and situational factors. Second, we examine the outcomes of continuing education, including changes in employees’ attitudes, knowledge, skills, and job behaviors. In the third section, we explore the roles that organizations play in encouraging employee participation in CE and in facilitating transfer of learning. Finally, the chapter concludes with directions for future research on continuing education and implications for management practice.
