Toward the 21st Century: Preparing Proactive Visionary Transformational Leaders for Building Learning Communities. Human Resource Development. Summer 1993.
Groff, Warren H.
This package includes a description of Nova University's Human Resource Development (HRD) core seminar and materials from the International Cluster. The first section presents the rationale for HRD as learning to learn becomes the critical technology in an era of global competition and accelerating modernization. An overview of Nova's core HRD seminars is followed by a description of the International Cluster HRD, started for foreign students and persons living in remote areas. The format consists of two seminars prior to the summer institute; its goal is the development of high performance learners and leaders. A 24-item bibliography is followed by seven appendices: (1) seminar student instructions and assignments; (2) HRD visions and action plans; (3) preferences for scenario and action plan development; (4) vision and action plan for "Science, Technology, and Society" by Madeleine Friedman; (5) explanation of Nova's electronic library; (6) list of student practicum papers and abstracts of seven major applied research projects; and (7) a networking session, "Science and Technology: Impact on Workplaces and Workforces."
