Keeping an Even Keel: What do you do to stay sane and healthy when you’re training and/or traveling too much?
Background: A question posed by ff user pollyalida to the T is for Training’s Friendfeed Room (the full conversation.) Share your tips for what you do to keep your head about you when on the road or doing a lot of training.  

Do You Know what I’m Saying? 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. What is the role of language in training and evaluation? Is this the secret to providing training that is remembered?

Get a Grip on Assessments: 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 assessments?
