The topic today — how do we re-ground ourselves when stress interferes with our roles as trainer-teacher-learners — was inspired by the article Stressed Out! What Can Teachers Do About It? On the call were Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl and Diane Huckabay. We deviated into the topic of staying organized, since being unorganized can lead to stress, and eventually got back to specific topics in the article itself.

We started with a talk about creativity in the classroom for teachers and learners inspired by this article “Creative Teacher’ Is Not an Oxymoron,” (found by our Associate Producer and Very Usual Suspect Paul S. )
On the call were Kate Kosturski, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Marc (in Calgary, Alberta), Donaldson and Maurice Coleman. (Marc and Donaldson were new to calling in!)
Kate started the conversation by talking about Pratt’s School of Information and Library Science becoming the Pratt Institute School of Information on October 5. (The announcement is here.) This brings up the difference between the i-schools (information) and the l-schools (library).
