Groff, Warren H.
This document describes the Orange County Cluster human resources development (HRD) seminar that was conducted as part of Nova University's nontraditional practitioner-oriented, problem-solving, field-based distance education program in higher education. Discussed first are HRD in the agricultural and business industrial eras and changing HRD practices/needs in the context of cognitive synapses and electronic networks. An overview of Nova University's programs for higher education and HRD is presented. California's economic, social, and educational climate is examined, and the conceptual framework of Nova University's program to create HRD specialists is outlined and discussed within the context of the HRD needs of Orange County, California. A 114-item bibliography is included. Appendixes constituting approximately 50% of this document include seminar instructions/assignments and supplemental materials, instructional support materials, sample HRD vision and action plans, and the following seminar papers: "Development of a Vision for Communications in a Total Quality Training Facility, Fleet Training Center, San Diego" (Gail J. Palmisano) and "Development of a Video Training Model to Increase Reliability of Neonatal Instructor Grading at Crafton Hills College" (Arnold L. Kosmatka).
