Phone Number: (724) 444-7444

The planned agenda:


IceBreaker —  Who are you, affiliation (if you want to,) where are you from and do you blog and if so where?

Why T is for Training

Undercover Training: How do you handle those “outside of your system” training opportunities.
Background: If you are a trainer, you know what we are taking about.  These trainings that you do outside of your system – do you do these as part of your current job or do you use vacation time and charge a consulting fee? Or both?  Or neither?

Do you want to go to ALA? Or CIL or LITA? (Tip o’ the T cap to ff’er Mhardy for inspiring this segment title.)
: Starting with a response to Marianne Lenox who was wondering how many and which conferences she should request to attend in 2009,  this FF conversation is still getting added comments.  So… Which conferences have you been to that you loved or hated or wanted to give another chance?  If you had to pick one conference to attend, which one and why? What conference do you wish you could attend?  If you could create a conference, what would it cover?

Qualify and Certify: Trainer Certifications, Qualifications and Organizations.
How did you become a trainer?  Are there real certifications that help? Was there college/trade school involved?

From the Back Room — A place to to talk about…


Foreshadowing...For show 3 ( Friday October 10th 2 pm) 

How do we handle assessment in all of its forms as trainers?
Background: Inspired by this blog post by Meredith Farkas, how do we ensure that our training works?  How we create time to do not just individual workshop pre and post assessment, but big picture staff development and training assessment?

How do you say what you say so that your trainees understand what you are saying?
Background: Inspired by Librarian by Day’s favoriting of a video about the power of language. Using different languages to convey the same idea.  Is this the secret to providing training that is remembered?  What is the role of language in training and evaluation?

I hope you join us live or on talkshoe for the call.  See you then.  Lets have some feedback, shall we?
