Welcome to Dr. Yonnie Chyung’s WORC (Workplace-Oriented Research Central) lab!

Chyung Book

Her recent major scholarly activity has resulted in a book, 10-Step Evaluation for Training and Performance Improvement, published by Sage.

Dr. Chyung runs a virtual lab. She actively invites OPWL students and graduates as WORC researchers. They are from various parts of the US and other countries. Here is how it works:

  • She forms virtual teams of WORC researchers to
    perform research, learning, and development activities together.
  • Team members set up a common project goal to pursue.
  • Team members meet via Zoom or Google Meet (as well as via email) to discuss their research progress.
  • Team members write manuscripts together, and publish them in journals or present them at conferences.
  • Depending on the scope of each project, team members may produce their publication or presentation within a semester or two, or it may take a couple of years to do so.

Please look around and see the current and previous WORC researchers’ work.
