Mind-sets at White Water West: Analysis and Instructional Intervention

This research project will investigate the attitudes and beliefs towards learning and different kinds of training programs at a company called White Water West, with the intention of then addressing any identified problem through the design, development, and implementation of learning programs and materials. This proposal is for a single internship unit of four months, focused on analyzing the situation for a potential problem, and the design of a recommended solution. A second proposal will be made for a second four-month internship in which to develop, implement, and evaluate the recommended intervention. The result for White Water West should be a corporate culture better oriented towards learning and growth, in addition to the development of learning materials that can be re-used for on-boarding and training purposes and inform managerial practice.
