Individual Differences in Learning.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on individual differences in learning. "Novice and Expert Learning: Impact on Training" (Barbara J. Daley) reports on a study in which 20 novice and expert nurses were interviewed to identify their different learning processes and the factors that facilitated or hindered their learning. The need to demystify the study of transformational learning so that human resource development practitioners can study it within organizations and a qualitative research model for studying transformational learning are discussed in "Studying Transformational Learning--It Can Be Done!" (Sharon Lamm). "Understanding Learning Climate in Organizations: A Case Study" (Mirjam A.A.H. van Moorsel, Danny Wildemeersch) reports a on a study of the learning climate in five departments of a Dutch chemical firm that identified two types of learning climates: a standardized, mechanical learning climate and a differentiated, mechanical learning climate. "An Examination of the Dimensionalities and Theoretical Framework of the Gregorc Style Delineator" (Christopher R. Hardy, Albert K. Wiswell, Thomas G. Reio, Jr.) reports on a study based on exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses that did not support the Gregorc Style Delineator's theory, design, scoring method, or accuracy of portraying cognitive learning style.
