Individual Learning Issues.
These three papers are from a symposium on individual learning issues. "A Quantitative Examination of the Feelings and Cognitive Processes of a Group of Adults Undertaking a Tertiary HRD [Human Resource Development] Program" (Bryan W. Smith) examines mental and emotional states of adults in a tertiary HRD learning situation by using stimulated recall methodology to categorize the scope and extent of these aspects of the informants' covert behavior. Reported results indicate the majority of thoughts and feelings were concerned with the behavioral moves of other students and their own self-performance. "The Cycle of Awareness Development: A Cognitive and Psychosocial Theory of Adult Development" (Martin B. Kormanik) uses qualitative data to suggest a five-stage cycle of awareness development (preencounter, intellectualization, encounter, empowerment, and integration), which repeats for each life event, transition, and other issue. "Personality Traits, Affect, and Values: A Model of Dispositional Effects on Motivation to Learn" (Elwood F. Holton III, Sharon S. Naquin) reviews the literature on dispositional domains of traits, affect, and values and proposes a model of dispositional effects on one HRD construct: motivation to learn. (YLB)
