This episode was SO awesome that it took TalkShoe seven days to process it and make it available! Enjoy!
On the call were Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli. Our topic:
Most significant developments in our training/teaching/learning communities in 2017
We talked about:
- Blended learning (online and on-site together) -> Blended existence
- Lack of good technology in organizations for telephone or video conference calls
- Infrastructure limitations
- Just in time training
- Leaving room for innovation
- Digital divide – both access and knowledge of what you have
- Meeting the learner at the point of need with apps
- Turning every learning opportunity into learning opportunities that include a flipped classroom model
- Creating interactive webinars (live online training)
- More acceptable of non-traditional learning models
- Change in the wording used to describe what we do and how we do it
FYI – Information on meeting rules for NYS library board of trustees. And the video Paul mentioned was Be More Dog.
A reminder that our next T is for Training will be on Jan. 5 and then we should be recording every two weeks throughout 2018. (Note that sometimes there are changes in the schedule and we do try to announce them in advance.)
Lastly, give T is for Training a holiday gift by doing two things:
- Contribute a review of this podcast to iTunes (one of the places this podcast is published). Leaving a review in iTunes is not as easy as living a review on some other web sites, but it would mean a lot if you would do it. This site has information (with photos) on how to leave a review. As Maurice said, be honest. We’re trainers and appreciate feedback, no matter what it is. (BTW right now we don’t have enough reviews so a rating displays for T on iTunes. That is making Maurice very sad.)
- Contribute a review on the TalkShoe web site. We have 11 reviews and an average rating currently of 4.64. We know that more than 11 people listen to T is for Training and hope that some of you would contribute a review here, too.
