Receiving the benefits of postsecondary education is important to nations throughout the world. A more educated citizenry results in, among other things, less crime and poverty, increased physical and mental health of individuals, and greater economic growth (e.g., American Human Development Project, 2009; Pascarella, & Terenzini, 2005). These benefits are felt at all levels of society (i.e., individual, community, and national) and essentially define the social and economic structure of a nation. According to a Lumina Foundation (2009) report “college-attainment rates are rising in almost every industrialized or post-industrial country in the world, except the U.S.” (p.1 ...

Ethics In In Research And Publication Process: Panel, Luca Gnan, Susan R. Madsen, Jim Davis Jun 2011

Ethics In In Research And Publication Process: Panel, Luca Gnan, Susan R. Madsen, Jim Davis

Susan R. Madsen

With the fairly recent and highly publicized breaches of ethics among members of the business community, there is a need to re-examine specific strategies employed in all kinds of organizations. Many business faculty members are comfortable teaching ethics in the classroom, but are we (as scholars and educators) appropriately challenging our own ethical practices? To assist in raising awareness of ethical concerns within the EURAM, we believe it is important to focus discussions on challenging our own ethics, particularly as faculty members in our various roles. Although there are professional ethical codes, there have been few venues for dialogue. This ...

Preparing More Hispanic Women For Effective Workplace Learning, Nicolle Johnson, Susan R. Madsen

Susan R. Madsen

Scholars and practitioners are interested in college attainment as an area of inquiry because post-secondary graduation is linked to increased life-long learning desires and skills as well as other benefits that will influence the effectiveness of future workplace training, development, and educational opportunities. For example, Pascarella and Terenzini (2005) stated that college not only influences employment and earnings but it also impacts moral, psychosocial, and cognitive characteristics in addition to attitudes, values, and quality of life. Cerna, Perez, and Saenz (2009) also argued that the various forms of capital (e.g., social, economic, cultural, and human) that students have when ...

Innovative Reflection Tools For Hrd Training, Development, And Education, Susan R. Madsen, Katherine Tunheims Feb 2010

Innovative Reflection Tools For Hrd Training, Development, And Education, Susan R. Madsen, Katherine Tunheims

Susan R. Madsen

The English word reflection is derived from reflectere, “to bend back” – as a mirror bends back the light, making apparent what is otherwise hidden or mysterious (Johnson, 2006). Reflection bends the light of our experiences back into our minds, to consider what the experience was about and what it meant. Reflection is also a critical element in transformational learning opportunities that should be part of effective training, development, and educational experiences (e.g., courses, workshops, programs). Since developing people is seeded in learning, HRD educators, scholars, and/or practitioners continuously work to understand the most effective methods and techniques to ...

Innovative Teaching In Hrd Graduate And Undergraduate Education, Susan R. Madsen, Wendy E.A. Ruona

Susan R. Madsen

There have been few forums within the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD) to discuss HRD education. We have had limited opportunities to share innovative teaching and learning techniques, pedagogies, projects, assignments, technologies, and ideas. As a dynamic discipline it is important that current and future HRD faculty continuously learn and change teaching methods and curricula to parallel the latest pedagogical knowledge and research, as teaching goals should focus on effectively facilitating student learning in our own courses and programs. Clearly since our field is strongly based on adult learning and training and development, we (as faculty) should be utilizing ...
