Information and Feedback Seeking in U.S. and British Human Resources Development and Training Settings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This survey‐based study investigated information and feedback‐seeking behavior in U.S. and British human resource development and training settings. It involved some 400 participants at two U.S. and three British universities and government agencies. Using self‐and other‐rating forms, the results indicated differences in perception of teaching styles and source, frequency, and usefulness of information regarding performance feedback and learning objectives. The study suggests that adult learners self‐regulate in learning situations to a greater degree than instructors anticipate. The study has implications for the education and training of HRD instructors and trainers and adds to the knowledge base of instructional theory.
