Samaroo, Selwyn; Cooper, Eleanor; Green, Tim – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
A debate that has engaged the attention of educators and scores of intellectuals is the longstanding issue of pedagogy versus andragogy.

Moran, Larry; Roth, Gene – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
Although theorizing about humor has occurred for several decades, scant research exists that examines humor in the broad context of human resource development.

Hurt, Andrew C.; Callahan, Jamie L. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
Paradigms aid organizational researchers in their quest to find the "truth" of a particular event, phenomenon, activity, or topic and by providing them a framework with which to make assumptions about the nature of society and reality. According to Burrell and Morgan (1978), organizational researchers use one of four paradigms:…

Cumberland, Denise M. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
A corporate executive provides an amusing and reflective account on her experience of being downsized. This "day in the life" perspective documents the feelings of an individual who found herself served with "divorce papers" from a job that had, in many ways, defined her identity. Her personal story shines the spotlight on…

Jacobs, Ronald L. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
The one constant for all dissertations, and for all research for that matter, is the need to state the problem of the study based on the scholarly literature. Doctoral programs commonly require that students take a sequence of research courses that usually focus on how to carry-out a study. That is, the design, the methodology, and the…

Koenig, Allison L.; Smith, Amber R. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
Media and popular culture reach broad audiences and have the potential to be an invaluable teaching resource in terms of promoting adult education and learning. Human resource development instructors can use media artifacts (e.g., films, television, novels, and cartoons) as useful methods to demonstrate learning theory and adult development…

Wright, Robin Redmon – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
Too often, educators, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of adult education and human resource development rely on traditional curricular materials and an academic body of knowledge for teaching, evaluating, and training adults. This assumes a coherent body of prior knowledge, assumptions, worldviews, and experiences in their students…

Sharma, Sonia – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
Adult educators often struggle with finding creative ways to help students understand adult learning theories and applications of those theories in professional practice. Media analysis of popular culture can uncomplicate this task by engaging learners in understanding concepts, principles or theories (Baumgartner & Merriam, 1999). The purpose of…

Hutchins, Holly M.; Bierema, Laura – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013
Examining media artifacts as a learning method has received little attention in human resource development (HRD) despite it being a predominate form of information and influence in popular culture. As Giroux (2002) opines, media functions as a form of public pedagogy by offering situations and contexts through which viewers can vicariously…
