Assignment: Human resources and professional advancement
Training and development are unique elements within human resources and professional advancement. It’s important to include development when one designs training, as training, in and of itself, may not be nearly as effective as when coupled with development, not only a professional development, but a development of knowledge transfer. Experiencing training may be useful in the short term, but it’s most effective when there is training transfer, when participants are able to not only understand, but also recognize opportunities and apply what was learned.
Using resources from the professional literature, research the definition of training and development. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
Explore when and why training may be important and what qualities of training and development make it effective.
Based on your research, respond to the following:
How do you define training? How do you define professional development?
What are the most common characteristics of an effective training and development program? How do these characteristics align with the analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation (ADDIE) or analysis, research, design, development, implementation, evaluation (ARDDIE) model of training and development?
Post your response in a minimum of 300 words. All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources. Apply APA standards to cite the sources.
Consider doing the following to enrich the discussion and learning experience:
Contribute new, relevant information or quotes from course readings or peer-reviewed sources.
Build on the remarks or questions of others.
Share practical examples of key concepts from experience, professional or personal.
Write your initial response in a minimum of 300–400 words. Cite the sources as per APA standards.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
