Advances in Distance Learning. Symposium 38. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Three presentations are provided from Symposium 38, Advances in Distance Learning, of the Academy of Human Resource Development 2000 Conference Proceedings. "Teaching Strategies in a Synchronous Learning Environment for Adult Students" (Luis A. C. Lima, Kathryn S. Hoff) reports the responses of intact cohort groups enrolled in spring semester 1999 to two learning style instruments and results that indicate preference for use of discussion, peer teaching, independent study, and lecture. "The Influence of Learning Style Preferences on Student Success in Online vs. Face-to-Face Environments" (Steven R. Aragon, Scott D. Johnson, Najmuddin Shaik) reports significant relationships between preferences and course success on five constructs for the face-to-face students and no significant relationships for the online students. Findings suggest students can be equally successful in both environments regardless of learning style preferences. "The Impact of a Distance Training System (DTS) with Two Distance Training Delivery Processes (DTDPs) on Trainee Satisfaction and Individual Job Performance: A Case Study" (Maria Hruby Moore) focuses on multiple regression output that suggests DTDP was not a significant contributor to trainee satisfaction or placements; work experience and manager involvement were statistically significant in predicting trainee satisfaction; and sales experience, manager involvement, and work environment were statistically significant in predicting the number of placements. The papers contain reference sections. (YLB)
