Feedback seeking in university human resource development education in the US, UK, and Singapore

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This survey-based study centered on feedback seeking behaviors by students in twelve human resource development university courses in the US, UK, and Singapore. Based on previous research, the study differentiated among sources of feedback, and student and instructor behaviors and characteristics. The results of this study suggest that students sought feedback about attainment of learning goals quite frequently and from a variety of sources. Instructors tended to underestimate their own role and overestimate the contributions of course activities and materials in this process. Individual-level and instructor-related variables emerged as important predictors of feedback seeking behaviors. The implications of these findings for further research and the practice of human resource development education and training are discussed.
