Archive for July, 2018

Talkshoe has changed lots of things about the site, including:

The interface is completely refreshed.  You should take a look before you join us again.  (Direct link to the T is for Training page.)

There is a new number to call into the show  
605-562-0444
Same Call ID: 24719

You can now ONLY stream episodes of the show back to January 2015.   Episodes previous to that were lost in the great Talkshoe Server Fail of 2018.

I will be working on a way to get downloads of the episode up as soon after the show as possible.

Follow the show @tisfortraining for more info.

Thanks.

On the call were Maurice Coleman, Clark Quinn, and Paul Signorelli, for a discussion centered on Clark’s wonderfully stimulating new book (from ATD Press) Millennials, Goldfish & Other Training Misconceptions: Debunking Learning Myths and Superstitions.

Clark talked about the process of writing the book at the request of ATD Senior Community of Practice Manager Justin Brusino (and why Clark originally wanted to call the book Dr. Quinn’s Emporium of Learning Myths); described what he learned from researching and writing the book (including what we actually know about the attention span of goldfish); offered insights into a variety of the learning myths and superstitions he explored in an attempt to help us better serve those we assist through our training-teaching-learning-doing efforts; and kept us entertained and interested in applying what we are learning from his work.

The resources mentioned during the program were rich and varied, and have been documented in a separate post on this T is for Training site.

Group at ALAOn the post ALA and post Fourth of July call were Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli. Our topic was:

Conferences (first half of 2018): What Are We Hearing, What Are the Trends We’re Seeing, and What Does All of That Mean for Those We Serve Through Training-Teaching-Learning-Doing?

Okay…so that is where we started, but we quickly wandered:

  • Social awareness issues
  • Responding to bullying, etc.
  • ALA panel on podcasting (So You Want to Podcast…)
  • The conference after the conference (a.k.a. networking at social events)
  • Micro-networking
  • Artificial intelligence

The panel from “So You Want to Podcast…” was (from the ALA web site):

  • Sara Benson, host of Copyright Chat, a podcast dedicated to discussing important copyright matters. She is a copyright librarian, attorney, and assistant professor at University of Illinois Library in Urbana-Champaign.
  • Maurice Coleman hosts the longest-running library training and presentation podcast T Is for Training. He is technical trainer at Harford County Public Library in Maryland. For 25 years he has facilitated live and virtual workshops and learning opportunities across the country. He was named a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in 2010.
  • Angela Ocana, co-host of the comic and manga fandom podcast One Panel Later, is a teen services supervisor with Eugene Library in Oregon. She is an American Library Association Emerging Leader, California Library Association Teen Librarian of the Year, and contributes to No Flying No Tights.
  • Steve Thomas is host and producer of the Circulating Ideas podcast, which facilitates conversations about the innovative people and ideas allowing libraries to thrive in the 21st century. He is a branch manager at Gwinnett County Public Library in metro Atlanta, where he does another podcast for the staff, Flip the Library.
