HRD: Past, Present and Future. Symposium.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on the past, present, and future of human resource development (HRD). "Revisiting the New Deal: A Longitudinal Case Study" (Judy Pate, Graeme Martin, Jim McGoldrick) draws upon data from a longitudinal case study of the links between job security and HRD to examine the new psychological contract between employers and employees in the context of changing economic circumstances. "R. Wayne Pace, First President of the Academy of Human Resource Development: An Historical Perspective" (Heather Hanson, Gary N. McLean) uses information from original documents, a historical video, and electronic conversations with R. Wayne Pace, first president of the Academy of Human Resource Development, and six of his colleagues to provide a brief history of Pace's activities as a leader in school, church, and the field of HRD, with special attention to his eclectic background in organizational communication and HRD. "HRD: A Perspective on the Search for New Paradigms in a Time of Crisis" (Ross E. Azevedo, Gary N. McLean) uses Kuhn's and Nagel's frameworks to explore the death of a mixed paradigm for HRD and proposes 18 activities to help identify new paradigms for the field of HRD. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
