KNOXVILLE — More than 350 scholars, practitioners and students from universities across the world will be coming to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, this week for the Academy of Human Resource Development’s (AHRD) 18th annual International Research Conference in the Americas.
This international symposium will be held Feb. 24-28 at the Knoxville Marriott. This is the first time that the city of Knoxville has hosted this conference.
Michael Lane Morris, Reagan Faculty Scholar in the Department of Management, is the current AHRD president.
“Historically, our international research conference has been the test-bed for innovative research thought and creativity regarding the discipline of human resource development, and I highly anticipate that the 2010 conference will yield similar results,” Morris said.
Participants will include human resource development researchers, thought leaders, practitioners, university faculty, academic administrators and graduate students from universities, as well as representatives of nonprofit organizations, governments and corporations worldwide.
AHRD is a global organization for the human resource development scholarly community of academics and practitioners. The academy was formed to encourage systematic study of human resource development theories, processes and practices; to disseminate information about the field; to encourage the application of research findings; and to provide opportunities for social interaction among individuals with scholarly and professional interests in human resource development from multiple disciplines and from across the globe.
