T is for Training 198 : Please Don’t Make Me Laugh
On the call were Maurice Coleman, Kate Kosturski, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli (three with coughs and one with a “busted” foot).
Paul started us off on a conversation about the Communities That Work Partnership Playbook (Nov. 2016), focusing on page 11 (see image). We focused on “balancing customization and standardization” in terms of training and education. In self-directed learning, students (and trainers) need to know that the correct skills are being learned which are necessary for the workplace.
Maurice brought up a wonderful image of a honeycomb, where you provide some structure and people are free to then fill-in the structure.
We moved eventually to a long conversation about conference planning and changing from sessions to tracks. And we ended by talking again about customized learning, with a slight detour on the topic of “ambivert.” (See “9 Signs That You’re An Ambivert.”)
