On Sunday, Feb. 1, Paul Signorelli, Jules Shore and Kate Kosturski hosted a Google Hangout Air to connect with colleagues, who were unable to attend ALA Midwinter in Chicago (#alaleftbehind). Maurice Coleman and Jill Hurst-Wahl were able to join in the conversation, and others were able to listen in. One of the lessons we all learned was about the technical aspects of doing this!
Andrea Snyder (@alsnyder02) Paul Signorelli (@paulsignorelli) and Maurce Coleman (@baldgeekinmd) participated in this week’s T is for Training. Collaborative Learning Spaces were the focus of the show, including conferences, informal learning places, and non traditional classrooms. You can listen to the show here.
The first T is for Training of 2015 (recording) and the participants were Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, Paul Signorell, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Steve Thomas. The conversation began with discussing:
Boss, Jeff. “How Smart Learners Stay Smart: 16 Ways to Stay on the Cutting Edge.” Forbes. Nov. 16, 2014.
And continued with discussing the need for professional development and for people to take charge of their professional development activities. We also discussed the happenings at Harford County Public Library.
- Harford County Public Library 2014 Annual Report
- New York State Public Librarian Certification
- Gamestorming: A Playbook for Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers
- HCPL Headlines & Happenings (winter 2014-15)

Here is Kate’s filling in for Maurice again, and this week, Jill Hurst-Wahl @jill_hw , Paul @paulsignorelli , Stephanie @slzimm1 (welcome back to the show!) and Katie Fearer from the State Library of Alaska talk about name changes for organizations, teaching-training-learning competencies, and the Webjunction Library CE Training Institute (that Maurice, Stephanie, and Katie are a part of), and the work they are doing.
The show is called Coaching is Not Therapy. Download the show right here
Maurice had an immoveable object called a keynote at the same time as the show. Thanks to my good friend and drinker of large adult beverage the next time I see her Kate K!
That’s not Maurice you hear at the start of the episode.
That’s not even Joseph Fink. (A little something for you Welcome to Night Vale fans.)
It’s actually Kate (@librarian_kate) filling in for Maurice this week while he’s off doing something more fun. Kate and Jill (@jill_hw) talk about e-books, since Jill happened to be at an event on the subject this week, the implications of e-books in training, conferencing, and then come up with a really great idea that you’ll only know about if you listen to the recording (which is right over here).
Next episode is on 16 May, where we may not come up with Really Great Ideas, but you’ll have a good time and you don’t have to worry about angering the Glow Cloud or The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home.
Have a good week and stay out of the dog park. :)
