Training Older Workers: Implications for HRD/HPT Professionals

Training Older Workers: Implications for HRD/HPT Professionals

Date: 1998
Creator: Allen, Jeff M. & Hart, Marcy
Description: This article discusses training older workers. In corporations across America, a race is on to find new ways to maximize human capital. An emphasis on lifelong learning will be vital for the success of our future workforce. As demographic shifts occur, the "older worker" will emerge as a primary target for this human development effort. This article explores the implications of this demographic shift for the human resource development and human performance technology (HRD/HPT) professional and recommends strategies for meeting this business need. First, the authors discuss the realities of this demographic shift and compare our current workforce demographics to those of the future. Next, the authors examine the common myths about the "older worker", as well as what current research reports about this special population. Finally, the authors examine the impact of this trend on our profession. The authors discuss strategies for modifying the workplace environment, reassessing workforce motivational strategies, and altering training practices in order to serve this older worker population. In conclusion, the authors look at the implications for the future in HRD/HPT research.

Retrospective Pretest: A Practical Technique for Professional Development Evaluation

Date: 2007
Creator: Allen, Jeff M. & Nimon, Kim F.
Description: The purpose of this study was to field test an instrument incorporating a retrospective pretest to determine whether it could reliably be used as an evaluation tool for a professional development conference. Based on a prominent evaluation taxonomy, the instrument provides a practical, low-cost approach to evaluating the quality of professional development interventions across a wide variety of disciplines. The instrument includes not only the questions typically associated with measuring participants' reactions but also includes a set of questions to gauge whether and how much learning occurred. Results indicate that the data produced from the instrument were reliable.

Copyright and Fair Use: An Issue of Ethics in a Changing Learning Environment

Copyright and Fair Use: An Issue of Ethics in a Changing Learning Environment

Date: 2004
Creator: Allen, Jeff M.; Elleven, Russell K.; Andrews, Charles G.; Cox, Lynne Cagle & Clem, Karen E.
Description: This article discusses copyright issues. Abstract: Copyright infringement is one of the most talked about, yet most misunderstood topics in the curriculum and instructional development areas. The field of copyright protection is fraught with gray areas that undermine an individual's honest ability to discern what might be lawful uses of copyrighted materials. This article begins with a brief history of copyright law in the U.S. and provides examples, references, and discussion of "fair use." Additionally, issues related to the Internet are addressed, including: Web Linking, Framing, Plagiarism, Web-based referencing. Finally, considerations and suggestions for teaching and using ethical practices in the industrial and educational classroom are discussed. Fair use and copyright in educational institutions is largely an ethical issue. Ethics are not dependent on individual's actions. All parties involved must contribute to the ethical nature of an event and must accept both the responsibility for their actions or their non-actions.

Technology in Secondary Career and Technical Education: Issues for the New Millennium

Technology in Secondary Career and Technical Education: Issues for the New Millennium

Date: 1999
Creator: Allen, Jeff M.; Walker, Michelle & Morehead, Connie
Description: This article discusses technology in secondary career and technical education. Today, school districts continually struggle with the following questions pertaining to career and technical education programs: How does career and technical education fit the secondary curriculum? What is the magic mixture of knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to ensure that American students have the competitive edge in the workplace? How should school districts train teachers of career and technical education to teach in the information age? How will the efficacy of technology implementation in career and technical education be measured? What trends should drive changes in career and technical education? The authors state that as we move deeper into the information age, we must seek to resolve these issues. This article addresses each of these concerns by exploring the use of technology in the secondary career and technical education classroom.

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Date: 2002
Creator: Andrews, Charles G. & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: This article discusses the Delphi consensus-building technique. Also discussed are the Delphi Technique's history, the process, and some advantages and disadvantages found in the literature. Finally, this article examines a technology-enhanced version of the process. The study provides researchers interested in using the Delphi Technique in conjunction with technology with a process that is easily duplicated. Nine university professors/instructors agreed to address one question: "What information should the student be aware of when working on a team project?" The question is unimportant. However, the results of the Delphi consensus regarding this single question are provided, along with a framework for conducting future Delphi studies, using computer technology. Cost savings and time reduction are important advantages to be considered when conducting a Technology-Enhanced Delphi study using computer technology.
