  ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM:

     The International Self-Directed Learning Symposium provides an international forum for the discussion of important current developments in the study and application of self-directed learning. The program design emphasizes intensive individual participation and group exploration of problems, issues and concepts. Program structure includes large group sessions as well as small group interaction opportunities.

     Theoreticians and practitioners are invited to submit a one-to-two page proposal for paper and poster presentations concerning self-directed learning in childhood education, higher education, adult education, and training and human resource development. International participants have included representatives from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.

     Trainers and resource development specialists have represented the following organizations: U.S. Department of Defense, State of Georgia, South Florida Water Management District, Digital Equipment, Ernst & Young, Fleming, IBM, Motorola, Revco, Niagara Mohawk Power, and others. A wide range of U.S. colleges, universities, and 12 school systems have been represented in the symposium from across the U.S. and from many other countries.

          (a) the results of recent research on self-direction in learning,

          (b) new developments in the application of self-directed learning ideas in diverse settings,

          (c) how to assess employees and students’ self-directed learning orientations, and
