Using Technology for Learning. Symposium 1. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on using technology for learning that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "Openness to Technology in Virtual Teams: Implications for International Human Resource Development" (Mary R. Watson, Leigh Anne Liu) reports on a study that examined the attitudes of 520 subjects in 6 countries toward technology and the use of technology in global virtual teams. "Towards a Framework for Teaching and Learning in an Online Environment: A Review of the Literature" (Sandra Wall Williams) addresses the lack of theory specifically related to teaching and learning in an online environment, presents two significant teaching and learning paradigms, and concludes that the integration of both approaches will allow for the emergence of new theories focusing on teaching and learning in online environments. "Learning Human Resource Development through Electronic Discussion" (Barbara J. Daley) reports on a study that examined the use of electronic discussion as a teaching and learning strategy for graduate students within an HRD graduate program. The study further indicated that learning progressed to a high analytical level during electronic discussion and that group process development also facilitated learning. The first and third papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
