Individual Learning Issues. Symposium 44. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on individual learning issues that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "Communication in the Workplace: Using Myers-Briggs To Build Communication Effectiveness" (Patrice M. Scanlon, Judy K. Schmitz, Tracey Murray, Lisa M. Hooper) reports on a study of workplace communication that suggested a relationship between length of employment and employees' satisfaction with communication between supervisors and their peers. "An Analysis Using Houle's Typology of Learning Orientation and Selected Variables in Predicting Student Persistence in a Two-Year Proprietary Technical College" (Francis C. Pengitore) discusses a longitudinal study of 468 students that examined the following three questions: (1) whether a profile exists for students who persist in college; (2) whether Houle's Typology of Learning Orientation is useful in predicting student persistence; and (3) whether a relationship exists between student persistence and learning orientation, income level, race, gender, high school graduation status, and college entrance examination scores. "Examining the Differences in Preferred Learning Environments between Members of the 'X' and the Baby Boomer Generations" (Blue Wooldridge, Stacey Bellamy) presents data on the preferred learning environments of approximately 200 Baby Boomer and Generation X graduate students in administration. The papers contain reference sections. (MN)
