Adult Learning in the Workplace.
This document contains four symposium papers on adult learning in the workplace. "The Relationship between Workplace Learning and Employee Satisfaction in Small Businesses" (Robert W. Rowden, Shamsuddin Ahmad) reports the results of a study of the nature and extent of HRD, level of job satisfaction among workers, and correlation between HRD activities and job satisfaction at small and midsize businesses in the United States and Malaysia. "Reframing the Andragogical Model of Adult Learning" (Elwood F. Holton III, Richard A. Swanson) examines the traditional model of andragogy and presents an expanded model, called Andragogy in Practice, that includes consideration for factors such as the following: individual learner differences, situational differences, and goals and purposes of learning. "A Holistic Model of Knowledge and Adult Learning" (Baiyin Yang) proposes a holistic theory of knowledge and learning according to which knowledge consists of three indivisible facets (explicit, implicit, and emancipatory) whose dynamic interrelationships must be considered when seeking to gain a better understanding of different learning modes. "The Nature of Adult Workplace Curiosity" (Thomas G. Reio, Jr.) reports on a study of 233 adults who completed four well-known curiosity instruments. (MN)
