T is for Training #1- Possible Topics Needed Please

With just under a week to go before the first T is for Training podcast, (You can subscribe o the feed here,)  we are beginning to build an agenda for the show.  You can also suggest topics and appropriate sites by bookmarking in delicious using the tisfortraining tag.

Possible Topics for this show (in no particular order):

A) Colleges Confront Shootings with Survival Training (AP Article here) from the Kept Up Academic Librarian Blog .
*We talked about it in the pilot, but wanted to revisit it in the first show.”

B) Being Wired or Being Tired: 10 Ways to Cope with Information Overload an article by Sarah Houghton-Jan (also known as The Librarian In Black)
A topic near and dear to most trainer’s hearts.

C) How Enterprise 2.0 Fosters Innovation: Stop Groupthink.
A very interesting article found at I Am Not Actually A Geek

D) What is a/your personal learning environment?  This article discusses it from a Web 2.0 slant, but do you use a blend of 1.0 (websites/email) and 2.0 (read/write/socialweb) tools for your personal learning? What tool have you stopped using for your personal learning?

E) You have delivered a great training for staff forever changing your organization for the better.   But only a few employees were able to attend.  How you make sure the knowledge and information in that  training is transferred to your staff?   How about new staff?  Do they just get left behind?

F) Are there “Top Ten Techie Trainer Traits?”  Inspired by Roy Tennant’s post on Library Journal Top Ten Techie Traits

These possibilities will join these standing items:

General Welcoming of People

The Vent — An end of show moment to let it all hang out.

Please let us know what you think via the comments to this post.

Thanks and see you on Friday.  11 Eastern.  Be There.  Aloha.
