Today we talked about:

Computers In Libraries 2009 Wrap Up and Down:

Recap: We loved the lobbycon/carpetcon/tablecon informal sessions, wifi, power and the great presentations.   For next year, perhaps identifying sessions by basic and advanced courses.  Also, include some hands on tracks, like the preconferences but within the conference.  Also the two folks who were not there were able to use twitter, ustream live, flickr and blog posts to feel that they also got some takeaways from the conference.   Also the live podcast was a big hit.

Pres4Lib: An East Coast Library camp for speakers and trainers being held on June 12th in Princeton NJ.  Looking to become an annual event.  As far as we know it will be the first Presenter/Trainer/Speaker focused library camp!

Recap: We want to see some learning around “Active Learning”  Exercises and modules; BattleDecks; and making sure that the conference is easily able to tag.

Adventures in Library Instruction Podcast A new podcast about instructional development in libraries.

Recap: New podcast specifically focused around libraries and instuctional development.  They started it because there was nothing out there that met his instructional design needs. (We here at T is for Training completely understand.)

Today’s Topics so far:

Computers In Libraries 2009: Yea’s Nay’s WrapUp, Lessons Learned and what we would like as trainers for future workshops. What would entice you to come to future CIL’s if you were unable to come to this one?

Pres4Lib: An East Coast Library camp for speakers and trainers being held on June 12th in Princeton NJ. What would you want to get out of a one day speaker/trainer unconference/library camp?  Who would you invite?

New: T is for Training is now the proud parent of a Google Group called, T is for Training (natch.)
