The next three episodes of T is for Training continue our practice of featuring an interesting mixture of guests and topics designed to inspire positive action among our colleagues in training-teaching-learning.
Howard Prager, a cherished colleague from ATD (the Association for Talent Development) will be with us this evening (Episode 303) to discuss his book Make Someone’s Day: Becoming a Memorable Leader in Work and Life and how it applies to our training-teaching-learning environments. Howard, as he notes on his own website, “is President of Advance Learning Group, an author, speaker, executive coach and leadership consultant who strengthens people and organizations through insightful talks, workshops, leadership and management programs.” Additional information about Howard and that engaging book is on my own website.
We’ll be turning everything on its head here at T for Episode 304 (Thursday, February 10, 2022) when we put show host Maurice Coleman at the center of a conversation about trainer-teacher-learners as lifelong learners to celebrate Maurice’s achievement in having recently returned to school to earn a B.A.
Casey Davis, author of Digital Civics and Citizenship: An Applied Approach, joins us for Episode 305 (February 24, 2022) to discuss the themes in his book and how they apply to our own work in training environments across the U.S. Casey is an educator with more than 20 years of experience working with diverse learners in a variety of settings and is among the colleagues I’ve met through the ShapingEDU community, under the auspices of Arizona State University.
All three hour-long episodes will be recorded, as usual, at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT on the dates listed in this preview. Archived recordings will be posted here on the T is for Training blog.
