Assessing University Programs. Symposium 9. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This packet contains three papers from a symposium on evaluating university human resource development (HRD) programs. The first paper, "Where Have All the Young Ones Gone? An Analysis of the Graduates of an Human Resource Development Program" (Douglas H. Smith, Jo D. Gallagher), reports the results of a survey of graduates between 1998 and 1999. Forty graduates responded, relating that more than 90 percent are working in HRD or a related field. They indicated the program enabled them to adequately carry out their responsibilities and identified weaknesses in the program (which are now being addressed), along with key competencies needed by graduates. The second paper, "Effective Strategies for Recruiting College Students: The Case of Louisiana State University College of Agriculture" (Fredrick Muyia Nafukho, Michael F. Burnett), reported on a study made to determine effective recruitment strategies for a university agriculture program. Data collected from 226 prospective freshman showed that substantively and statistically significant models exist that enhanced the researchers' ability to explain enrollment status. The study suggested enrollment modeling as a basis for enrollment management. The final paper, "Innovative Techniques in the Training of Health Professionals: The Case of Moi University, Faculty of Health Sciences, Kenya" (Simon Kangethe, Fredrick Muyia Nafukho, Alfred M. Mutema), argues that innovative teaching and learning methods are quickly replacing the traditional methods that were characterized by straight lectures, large group demonstrations, and apprenticeships, with the current emphasis being on placing the learner at the center of the learning process, and the responsibility shifting from the teacher to the learner. The training of health professionals in Kenya is the setting for the discussion. The papers contain reference sections. (KC)
