Distance Learning. Symposium 4. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on distance learning and human resource development (HRD). "An Exploration of Perceived Differences in Teaching Roles between On-Site and On-line Instruction" (James J. Kirk) reports on a study in which 144 online instructors at selected institutions across the United States were asked to share their perceptions about the effect of online instructional delivery on the following 9 traditional teaching roles: authoritarian; counselor; discussion monitor; evaluator; subject matter expert; information presenter; instructional designer; mentor; and role model. "Factors Affecting Student Completion in a Distance Learning Mediated HRD Baccalaureate Program" (Hui-Chin Chu, Barbara E. Hinton) analyzes the impact of the following factors on nontraditional adult students' completion of a distance learning-mediated baccalaureate degree-level HRD program: demographics; number of technical and general education hours transferred; and work-related and family-related variables. "Experiences of Web-based Instruction among African-American Students Enrolled in Training and Development Graduate Courses" (Saundra Wall Williams) reports on a study of the online experiences of graduate-level African-American students that focused on learner-instructor interactions and gave new insights as to why African-American students do not participate or continue to participate in Web-based courses at the graduate level. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
