The first of the three papers in this symposium, "Scaling the Walls of Academic Silos: The Birth of a Cross-disciplinary Academic HRD [Human Resource Development] Program" (Ann K. Brooks, Kathleen Edwards, Alison Davis-Blake), describes and analyzes how one HRD program transcended the walls of the graduate school of business and a college of education and created a cooperative program in human resources. "An Examination of Teaching Pedagogies in Entrepreneurial Education, an Historical Examination" (Ayman Tarabishy, Erik K. Winslow, George T. Solomon) discusses results of the 1997 National Survey of Entrepreneurial Education and compares the findings to four earlier national surveys conducted from 1979-1992, with results indicating a trend toward greater integration of practical applications and technology into the teaching pedagogy of entrepreneurial education. "Examination of Critical Issues for Development and Implementation of Online Instruction" (Scott D. Johnson, Nilda Palma-Rivas, Chanidprapa Suriya, Steve Downey), is a descriptive and exploratory study that examined several critical issues affecting the development and implementation of online instructional programs. The intent of the study was twofold: (1) help online program personnel understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by online instruction; and (2) expand the base of knowledge regarding this new form of instructional delivery.
