On the call
were Paul Signorelli, Diane Huckabay, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Tom Haymes, and Maurice Coleman. We started off talking about reversing assumptions in training-teaching-learning, then jumped into talking about the difference between teaching and training. We deterred and dove into technology for a while, then circled back to assumptions in training/teaching.
Wow. Yes, we got an early book reference (thanks Paul) as well as a Star Trek reference (thanks Jill), and a few laughs, while also considering the topics.

What are we talking about? Conferences (and more)! On the call were Diane Huckabay, Tom Haymes, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, and Maurice Coleman.
Maurice started us off by talking about the Computers In Libraries Conference, where ChatGPT loomed large. Among the lessons from those conversations are that the system needs to be open, transparent, and that you need to own your content. Who are the owners? Who has access to it?
BTW Computers in Libraries was held this year at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City (VA). Its sibling conference, Internet Librarian, will be held online this year.
Paul attended the Associated Collegiate Press Spring National College Media Conference, which was held in his backyard (San Francisco). Part of what stood out was the networking and support opportunities available to students. Paul’s blog posts are in his blog.
Tom talked about the ShapingEDU Global Community Solutioneering Summit 2023 (GCSS23). Tom reflected on this conference in a blog post. He poised the question of why do students engage with TikTok rather than online learning? What makes the experience with TikTok better? Listen for his answer.
We ended by talking about lobbycon and unconferences. Ah…the stories!
