Attacking Supervisory Training Problems

R. G. Greiner | January 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

We have come a long way and made a great deal of progress in the past ten years in gear-ing training to the times. When I think of the tremendous training problem which faced us at the outset of the war, I am still amazed at the results which were accomplished under the circumstances.

Supervisory Training In Texas

D. L. Belcher | January 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

One cannot get a complete picture of the present situation of supervisory training in the Southwest without taking a glance backward to see how the foundations were established. Soon after the acceptance of the Smith-Hughes Act, Foreman Training, as it was then called, was assigned to the T. & I. Teacher Trainers of the A. & M. College, at College-Station, and Texas University, at Austin.

Making Training Effective

January 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

A few weeks ago a member of the Society addressed to national secretary Hugh Booth a letter asking for help.

We Are ProgressingWhy

Hugh Booth | November 01, 1948 | TD Magazine Archive

In the September-October issue of the Jour-nal we outlined some of the items indicative of the progress which the American Society of Training Directors is making in respect to membership, activities and services. The facts are, however, that the active membership of the ASTD is much less impressed by the progress which has been made than by the advance which is yet to be made.

Training of Apprentices

EARL McCONNELL | September 01, 1948 | TD Magazine Archive

Those who have the responsibility of ap-prentice training must face many day-to-day problems such as persuading boys to enter apprenticeship, maintaining the interest of the apprentices, etc. Certainly there are many questions that arise concerning these and other problems.
