HRD Professional Development.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on professional development of human resource development (HRD) professionals. "Lifelong Learning and Performance: The Role of Key Qualifications in Human Resource Development" (Simone J. van Zolingen, Wim J. Nijhof) argues that, besides being of interest to employers, key qualifications are also of interest to HRD practitioners because they are acquired not only in initial vocational education but also during a process of lifelong learning. The findings of interviews during which 15 senior training executives from Fortune 500 corporate universities spoke about their career paths, education, career obstacles, and essential personal and professional characteristics and competencies are presented in "Analyzing Career Paths of Corporate University Senior Training Executives" (Christopher F. Bober). "Preparing Tomorrow's HRD Professionals: Perceived Relevance of the 1989 Competency Model" (Donna E. Dare, James A. Leach) examines trainers' ratings of 25 trainer competencies and compares the findings to those of a 1991 survey. "Using an On-line Focus Group to Identify Research Issues in Distance Education/Trainer Development" (Margaret L. Bailey, Danilo M. Baylen) reports 10 distance educator/trainers' regarding key characteristics and skills of distance educators/trainers, successful training and development activities and support services, and barriers to successful development.
