Graduate Student Research Colloquium

Participants in this colloquium will examine the following aspects of HRD: the standards for quality writing and rigorous research in HRD; criteria guiding the evaluation of research in HRD; research paradigms and related methods used to conduct and report research; and, as we celebrate the Silver Anniversary of the Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD), the role of our organizations to lead the profession through research. For participants engaged in and passionate for scholarship, this colloquium provides a venue for sharing research work and exploring the path to establish a scholarly identity in the pursuit of an academic or scholar-practitioner career.

For participants engaged in practice and passionate about understanding how research leads practice, this colloquium provides an opportunity to experience how to evaluate and critique HRD research and to discuss means to incorporate research into practice.
