Individual Learning Issues.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on individual learning issues in human resource development (HRD). "Bringing Cross-Cultural Sensitivity to Human Resource Development: An Example from the Classroom" (Robert L. Dilworth) reports on a classroom-based case study in curriculum design for global HRD that emphasizes the importance of preparing HRD professionals for the complexities of cross-cultural settings. "The Analysis of the Effects of Experiential Training on Sojourners' Cross-Cultural Adaptability" (Donna L. Goldstein, Douglas H. Smith) discusses a case-control study in which the hypothesis that cross-cultural training would improve training participants' cross-cultural adaptability was tested in a sample of 42 graduates of a week-long experiential cross-cultural training program and a control group of similar sojourners who received no training. The conceptual and empirical literature that undergirds the use of play in education and training, in particular, the literature exploring the connection between adult play and flow theory, is reviewed in "Play Theory for HRD: A Conceptual Literature Review" (Rebecca "Becke" Adams).
