If librarians are inherently conservative (as I think we are, me included), and we FF/Facebook/Twitter/IM/2d Life etc folks are outliers, how can we bring change into our organizations? How can we teach others to be agents of change? Original Friend Feed Conversation of Andrew Schuping

Beth asked in FriendFeed: How do you personally handle it (emotional level per se) when someone you are trying to train or educate about something just doesn’t seem to get it no matter how many ways you come at it. They resist no matter what and rather blame technology than the human part of the equation.

Inspired by a post from Lori Reed:3 Trainer’s Tips to Start the New Year: Let’s discuss what our training tips to other trainers are for the start of the new year.

Peter tapped the hive mind with the question: What distance/virtual learning software do you have experience with and what would you recommend?

See you on the next episode of T is for Training on Friday January 30th at 2 pm Eastern Time.

Sorry this post about the possible content for the next show is coming out so late.

Here are some ideas we may explore at 2 pm eastern time today (that is in 45 minutes)

So there are some ideas to chew on for today.
