This study examined the use of technology-based training and development within expatriate populations after the 2008 global recession. A quantitative survey design was used to collect data. The study results were shared with a live, face-to-face group forum of training and development practitioners. A total of 46 participants answered the survey. Findings related to participant demographic data as well as their perceptions regarding the impacts of the 2008 recession, training timing and topics, and training methods were reported. The study findings indicated that the 2008 global recession did not have a strong impact on these participants. They also tended to receive training after they arrived onsite. Technology-based training was not viewed as highly effective by expatriates. Rather, it is traditional instructor-led classroom training that best prepared American expatriates for their work assignment abroad, second to blended learning of classroom and technology training.
