Issues in Career and Human Resource Development. Research Papers from the ASTD National Conference (St. Louis, Missouri, 1979). ASTD Research Series. Paper No. 5.
Springer, Judith W., Ed.
This book contains six presentations from the American Society of Training and Development National Conference in St. Louis. The paper, Career Development, Personal Growth, and Experiential Learning, sees learning as the central task of career development, with experiential learning theory providing a framework for mapping career changes and a context for changing needs for personal development. Problem Solving, Creativity, and Cognitive Style examines factors entering into creative problem solving. Two aspects of creative problem solving are discussed which are related to individual differences in cognitive styles. Occupational Adaptability and Transferable Skills: Preparation for Tomorrow's Career discusses the need for a variety of skills and abilities (developed through both work and non-work experiences) and occupational adaptability and flexibility and relates them to the current research program at the National Center for Research in Vocational Education. Situational Influences on Women's Career Development explores situation variables, such as social-structural and life cycle. Training: A Means, Not an End suggests selecting intended results in terms of current and future societal requirements. Demystifying Research in Human Resource Development--Simplified Research Guidelines provides a set of systematic procedures for obtaining information when there are not enough resources to conduct a full-scale study.
