Toward the 21st Century: Preparing Proactive Visionary Transformational Leaders for Building Learning Communities. Human Resource Development.
Groff, Warren H.
This package includes a description of Nova University's Human Resource Development (HRD) core seminar and seven doctoral student papers. The description (by Warren Groff) explains how a major curriculum change was made to convert the vocational, technical, and occupational specialization seminar, Personnel-Human Resources Development, to the core seminar, Human Resources Development (HRD). The conceptual framework for the HRD core seminar involved an audit of HRD within the student's work context, a vision of a strategic direction and preferred scenario for an area of responsibility within each student's work context, and creation of a multiyear HRD action plan. An important issue for the Ed.D. Programs for Higher Education was seen to be assembling the critical mass of HRD Systems Engineers who would design and implement forms of alternative education that would produce a critical mass of high performance learners and leaders who could create learning communities in an advanced technical era. Appendixes include 24 references and the 7 student papers: "An Analysis of Governance Structure of the Amarillo Hospital District and Northwest Texas Hospital" (Richard Pullen); "Strategic Planning: Delivery of Quality Care through Nursing's Commitment to Quality Improvement" (Pullen); "Goals: Implementation of a Program to Enhance Nursing Commitment to Total Quality Improvement at NTH" (Pullen); "An Analysis of Human Resource Development at Arkansas Technical University" (Kathryn D. Pearson); "A New Vision for Elementary School Mathematics at Arkansas Tech University" (Pearson); "The Restructuring of Developmental Mathematics at Arkansas Tech University" (Pearson); and "Vision 2000: A Pedagogy Shift--Critical Thinking and Caring. Strategic Human Resource Development Plan for Restructuring Nursing Department Curriculum, Southwest Missouri State University, West Plains Campus" (Juanita J. Roth). (YLB)
