Parke, Joanne
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, Mar 3-7, 2004) p329-336 (Symp. 17-1)
A common thread within a growing globalism is the creation of an emerging knowledge-based workforce. This paper will discuss a message supported by adult education theory that is beginning to manifest itself in human resource development and the growing globalism that steeped in communication and information. Theoretical implications are reviewed that capitalize on transforming workers to learners whose world views are dramatically altered through the appropriate utility of humor that may lead to transformation.
