Professionalizing the Field.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on professionalizing the field of human resource development (HRD). "Issues in the Professionalization of HRD: Building a Knowledge Base and Credentialing Practitioners" (Robert W. Rowden) discusses indicators of an emerging field as workplace education becomes a major strategic thrust. "Professionalization Comes from Theory and Research: The 'Why' Instead of the 'How-To'" (Neal E. Chalofsky) argues that, without reliable theory and research, HRD can never become a viable discipline with a solid knowledge base. In "Professionalization and Reflective Theory Building in HRD" (Vivian W. Mott), reflective theory building is identified as a way to identify the source of HRD knowledge and the means of knowledge production."Credentialing in the Workplace: Human Resource Development Practitioners Should Strive for Certification" identifies workplace trends influencing certification and makes the case in favor of it.
