Read, Talk, Play, Watch: How HRD Practitioners Like to Learn
Tyler, Jo A.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
While an aim of research is to inform practice, there exists a tension between scholars who undertake research and practitioners whom it might benefit. Scholars work diligently inside a system that values print for dissemination, but practitioners opine that the practicalities are embedded within ponderous articles rife with academic language and form. This qualitative study inquires into the learning preferences of HRD (human resource development) practitioners with a special focus on their preferences when learning from printed materials. (Contains 2 tables.)
