New Perspectives in Evaluation. Symposium 6. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on new perspectives in education that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "A Systems Model for Evaluating Learning and Performance" (Hallie Preskill, Darlene Russ-Eft) describes a model for HRD developers to use in evaluating learning and performance that takes into account not just the processes of evaluation but also the internal and external variables that affect evaluation design, implementation, and utilization. "Economic Analysis of Human Resource Development: Update on the Theory and Practice" (Richard A. Swanson) reviews economic research related to the contribution HRD makes to the success of organizations and emphasizes the importance of assessing HRD functions in terms of their overall contribution to the organization. According to "Evaluating HRD Research Using a Feminist Research Framework" (Laura L. Bierema, Maria Cseh), which reports on an analysis of more than 400 Academy of Human Resource Development papers from 1997-1999, few studies recognize gender as a category of analysis and studies concerned with the following topics are nearly absent from the HRD literature: women's/diverse people's experience, asymmetrical power arrangements, problems of racism and sexism, and advocacy of social justice and change. All three papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
