Improving Learning with Technology. Symposium 25. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on improving learning with technology. "The Benefits, Challenges, and Implications of Teleworking: A Literature Review" (Susan R. Madsen) reviews the literature on the benefits and challenges of teleworking for individuals, work groups, and organizations and investigates the implications of telework for human resource development (HRD) theory and practice. The report presents eight recommendations for HRD practitioners, including the following: (1) be prepared to design approaches to evaluate, educate, organize, and inform workers; (2) train workers to adapt to a new environment and cope with its challenges; and (3) train mangers to monitor telecommuting programs carefully and react in an expedient manner to correct any undesirable consequences. "A Study of e-Learning Practices in Selected Fortune 100 Companies" (Danielle Strazzo, Tim L. Wentling) reports the results of a survey that examined why 7 Fortune 100 companies have introduced e-learning to their employees. The future of e-learning is also discussed. "Human Resource Development for International Technology Transfer within Multinational Enterprises in Singapore" (Aahad M. Osman-Gani) presents empirical information on the status of international technology transfer and the HRD practices used in the transfer process. Two papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
