Toward the 21st Century: Preparing Proactive Visionary Transformational Leaders for Building Learning Communities. Human Resource Development. South Florida Cluster.
Groff, Warren H.
The first part of this document describes Nova University's doctoral program in Vocational, Technical, and Occupational (VTO) Education, developed in response to the need to create high performance learners and leaders for building learning communities. It discusses how a curriculum change in 1990 resulted in the following: conversion of the Personnel-Human Resources Development seminar to the core seminar Human Resources Development (HRD); addition of Leadership as a sixth core seminar; addition of a VTO Trends and Issues specialization seminar; elimination of Learning Theory as a core seminar; and reduction of the number of practicums from five to four. All professionals enrolled for their first seminar are placed in one section and all other individuals in a second section. The 16-page report is followed by a 10-item bibliography and the materials mailed to students in August 1993, including welcome letter, instructions and assignments, and supplemental memoranda. Seven papers (assignments) of four students are then provided: "Strategic Planning and the Role of Human Resource Development at Nova University" (Gregory Stiber); "A Conceptual Framework for the Institute of International Trade and Development" (Gregory Stiber); "A Three-Year Strategic Plan for the Advancement of the Institute of International Trade and Development" (Gregory Stiber); "The Development of a Plan to Design and Deliver Programs Based on Client Needs Assessment for the Center of Hospitality Management at Nova University" (Dana Tesone); "A Model for Faculty Development in Occupational Therapy" (Pamela K. Shaffner); "Strategic Planning for Faculty and Program Development in Occupational Therapy" (Pamela K. Shaffner); and "The Need for Teamwork Training for Faculty and Staff at the Postsecondary Level" (Lindy S. Pickard). (YLB)
