The 120th @tisfortraining recorded on Friday. Download the podcast here.
But I tell you what, it was a brilliant list.
Episode 119 (60 minutes) is a conversation between Maurice Coleman, Marianne Lenox and Jill Hurst-Wahl. By the way, those long silences aren’t a technical glitch, unless you want to call Maurice’s kitchen plumbing issue a tech problem! The episode begins with Maurice asking Jill about being on the Board of Directors for SLA and then moves into a lively discussion about keynote speakers, and our belief that it is important to have more speakers who are female and people of color.

T is for Training Host and Producer.
Guest host Kate is back, filling in for Maurice while he is down in Virginia presenting at the Virginia Library Directors’ meeting (but he and usual suspect Paul Signorelli did find time to call in and say hello).
Our conversation this episode is (mostly) with usual suspect Jill Hurst-Wahl and her experiences at the R Squared Conference, a very different kind of library conference, earlier this month in Telluride, Colorado. (Also on the call is usual suspect Marianne Lenox!)
Some links discussed during the show:
- Jill’s blog posts highlighting the conference:
- Blog post from Syracuse iSchool student Topher Lawton on his experiences:
- Topher also shared his experiences on his personal blog:
- What other library conference can you attend where you can get up close and personal with a snake? (Thanks to Crystal Schimpf for the photo!)

See you then!
No show today, next show on August 24th….
When did the Bald Geek in MD turn female and pick up a New Jersey accent?
Oh wait…that’s just guest host Kate (@librarian_kate)!
Join Kate and Paul Signorelli (@trainersleaders) for a mostly serious conversation about technology, training with different skill levels, the trainer as trainee, and more. Paul claims he’s not interesting and Kate claims she didn’t break Talkshoe, but we beg to differ.
Some of the useful stuff we talk about:
- Craftsy platform (powered by Sympoz) as an example for interactive, engaging learning with technology. Read about it here.
- Paul’s blog post on how to deal with what we called the “social media hangover”
- The awesomeness of alalearning.org
We’ll see you in August. Feel better Maurice and enjoy your new bionic wrists!
