Answer one (only ONE) of the following questions. Do not answer all three.
Question 1: Compare and contrast the pedagogical and andragogical approaches to instruction. Suppose the president of a local hospital asks you to design a program to increase employee awareness of sexual harassment and train participants in ways to deal with harassment complaints. Which principles (from either approach) do you feel might be useful? Support your choices.
Question 2: Research by David Kolb and others suggests that individuals have different learning styles. How would a manager who has a convergent learning style and a manager who has a divergent learning style differ in their approach to learning? Suppose you are going to conduct training sessions designed to teach managers how to give feedback to subordinates. These 2 managers are scheduled to participate. What might you do (if anything) to handle their style differences to ensure that both of them learn the material you present?
Question 3: What is the relationship between organizational needs analysis and strategic planning? How can tying HRD programs to an organization’s strategic plan make it easier to justify requests for resources to develop and deliver HRD programs?
