Welcome/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

A discussion of Learning 2008 – I (along with some other folks from Maryland and California) attended the Learning 2008 conference (session topics, spreadsheet and guide) last month in Orlando.  Run by the Maise Institute, it is an intensive workshop featuring small group and plenary learning sessions taught by learning leaders from the Fortune 100, Fortune 500, non-profit and government sectors.

A topic suggested by “Newly Minted Syracuse Library School Professor” and T is for Training Contributor Jill Hurst-Wahl: How have people co-developed workshops/training sessions with others? Tips? Are corollary might be how do you train someone to teach your stuff?

  1. I know this comment is both on and off-topic.

    Can you learn creativity/innovation? I attended the Experiential Classroom IX in September and one of the presenters was Jeffrey Stamp (http://www.view.uidaho.edu/documents/Jeff%20Stamp.pdf?pid=109866&doc=1). My notes from his sessions are nearly non-existent because (1) he was so mesmerizing and (2) my team had to do a presentation right after that. What stands out to me is that innovation is not always thinking way out of the box, but connecting information differently. I “think” that is the key to some of the products he has development.

    I wonder if we (library workers) could learn how to be more creative from him?

    Another person, Doug Hall, who runs the Eureka Ranch (http://www.eurekaranch.com/) I “think” believes that innovation is a process (and one that he has successfully helped companies learn and use). It would be interesting to know if his process would work with libraries.
