Motivation for Learning and Performance. Symposium 3. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on motivation for learning and performance that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "A Holistic Approach towards Motivation To Learn" (Constantine Kontoghiorghes) reports on a study that identified the following key variables within and outside the learning environment as the most important predictors for motivation to learn during training: task autonomy, extrinsic rewards, organizational orientation toward quality improvement, and a work environment where people live up to high ethical standards. "Nonprofit Learning Organizations: Issues for Human Resource Development" (Susan Kay McHargue) reports on a study of nonprofit organizations (NPOs) as learning organizations that revealed the existence of a direct relationship between learning organization dimensions and resources and performance in NPOs and supported the need for HRD in NPOs. "Employee Perceptions of the Meaning of Empowerment" (Mark S. Rulle, Neal Chalofsky) reports on a study that explored nonsupervisory employees' perceptions of the meaning of empowerment and resulted in the identification of the following major themes that function independently as aspects of empowerment: impact, competence, autonomy, meaning of work, and relationship with supervisor. All three papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
