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 ...

Although its use in an HRD course has rarely been reported in the literature, the teaching methods appear to be ideal for instilling in students the skills and/or traits necessary to be successful in HRD (e.g., intellectual versatility, adult learning insight, and industry understanding).

What Hrd Curriculum Is Being Taught Within Hr Programs In U.S. Business Schools, Susan R. Madsen, Anita L. Musto, Tyler S. Hall

Susan R. Madsen

The number of academic human resource development (HRD) programs has substantially increased over the past 15 years (Kuchinke, 2001). This growth has been attributed to the increased demands for HRD-related employee skills, expertise, and performance in today’s dynamic workplace and economic environment. Kuchinke found that the large majority of HRD programs are located in colleges and schools of education. However, as we strive to describe and measure the influence and growth of HRD in academic settings, it is important to consider the HRD curriculum taught within other schools, departments, degrees, programs, and specializations. One such area of HRD influence ...
