Sexual harassment. State law. Diversity. Training.
Yes, we talked about all of those topics and they ALL were related to the idea that repetition helps to accelerate learning. On the call were Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and an unnamed guest.
We began by talking about spaced repetition, from the Psychotatics article. Then we quickly moved into talking about the new requirements in New York State for yearly anti-harassment training for everyone who works in NYS (see links below). We talked about the requirements, the form that the training takes, and more. Along the way, we wondered if library volunteers and board of trustees should also be trained. Near the end of the program, we touched upon diversity and bias. It was a lively hour! And yes, the idea of spaced repetition is throughout.
This is a slightly longer episode than normal (63 minutes); however, there are 2:35 minutes of silence (oh, Talkshoe!) in the beginning, so skip ahead.
