Research has shown that adult learners prefer a problem-solving, rather than a subject-centered approach to learning. Human Resource Management provides a nontraditional view of teaching and learning the basics of human resource management through a series of 125 in-basket exercises and guided questions. Exercises focus on current problems and issues that confront school administrators on a daily basis. A brief history of assessment centers and a synopsis of recognized adult-learning theories are also provided. This revised edition includes: -in-basket exercises linked to ISLLC Standards -updated "suggested readings" -six new in-basket exercises -an expanded list of online resources Human Resource Management: A Problem-Solving Approach Linked to ISLLC Standards will have a positive impact on university courses in personnel administration, as well as professional development programs undertaken at the district level.

What a wonderful tool for professional development or candidate screening. After serving 15 years as an urban school superintendent, I can attest this publication contains realistic examples that school administrators may face on any given work day.--Richard J. Halik, Ph.D., superintendent emeritus, Lansing, Michigan Public Schools
