Inhoud vak

The Human Resource Development (HRD) Analytics course deals with the
rapidly changing Human Resource Management function. In the contemporary
world of work, one of the key changes related to developing people in
organizations is that it is becoming increasingly evidence-based. In
order to get organization wide support for costly HRD practices,
nowadays it is crucial that HR practitioners know how to apply
theoretical knowledge when designing and implementing learning programs
and know how to generate evidence of their effectiveness (e.g., transfer
of learning, return), thus measuring learning programs. The HRD
Analytics course will help you to better understand what evidence-based
HRD entails, and also provide you with tools that help you deal
effectively with HR data.

The course has two main goals: (1) to provide you with state-of-the-art
knowledge and theory about Human Resource Development and talent
management in contemporary organizations; and (2) to provide you with
the skills necessary to work with HR datasets and help you understand
how they can be used to achieve evidence based HRD-practices. Using
real-life learning and development dilemmas and data, the course will
prepare you to become a frontrunner and expert in an important, yet very
young field of study.
