This blog post is a summary of a session done at the Computers in Libraries Conference on March 10, 2016 by Maurice Coleman and Forrest Foster. This post was originally published here and is republished here with permission,
Forrest Foster, host of Let’s Talk Learning Spaces – he works at an academic library in North Carolina – and Maurice Coleman, host of T is for Training – he is technical trainer for Harford County Public Library.
We used the article Learn Today; Be Prepared Tomorrow by Maria Ho from the February 2016 issue if ATD magazine to spark a discussion on what tools we use to help learners learn and how to model good behavior.
On the call were Maurice Coleman , Paul Signorelli, Courtney Young,Jill Hurst-Wahl and mystery guest 5 from the Buffalo, NY area. The topic was the Padagogy Wheel. What is the Padagogy Wheel? According Allan Carrington:
The Padagogy Wheel was born out of a desire to help teachers at the coalface of teaching. I wanted a model that could be applied to everything from curriculum planning, development, writing learning objectives and designing student centered activities. Then quickly help teachers access relevant educational technology e.g. individual iPad apps or sequences of apps, to enhance those activities. Finally to help teachers use that technology to redefine activities to include tasks previously inconceivable. I believe this will increase student engagement, improve learning outcomes and empower a student towards transforming into an excellent graduate.
We also talked about using student use in the classroom.

Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Kate Kosturski, Angela Paterek, and Andrea Snyder talked about the just released NMC Horizon report, BYO devices, adaptive learning, augmented and virtual reality, makerspaces (since we have always been makerspaces), and how to tell and sell our library stories to others. You can listen to the show here.
Maurice Coleman and Jill Hurst-Wahl discussed ALA accreditation, the idea of whether there should be library trainer certification, and likely a few other random topics (like snow). You can listen to the show here.
As promised, are here is a link to the 2015 ALA Standards for the Accreditation of of Master’s Programs in Library and Information Studies. Information on the entire accreditation process can be found in the Accreditation Process, Policies and Procedures (AP3), fourth edition.
A question for the T is for Training audience is…if someone created a certification for library trainers, so that you knew that the library training had learned “X”, what would “X” be? Feel free to leave comments on this post OR write a blog post in your blog about this topic (and then tell us where that post resides).
All about relationships and monetary return on relationship building face to face and online. Also makerspacing.

Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, and Jill Hurst-Wahl talked about the article “Lifelong Learning In Companies Of The 21st century.” In the article, Juan Carlos Sánchez noted nine (9) tendencies that we should take into consideration in regards to lifelong learning and especially continuous training.
We deviated into talking about library marketing and building the demand for library services. For example, can we be “the place” for life-long learning? We also talked about training room design.
This was the last show for 2015, due to the December holidays. Our next show will be January 8. If you are going to ALA Midwinter, consider calling in!
The show title for today is based on a conversation in chat during the show, when Paul mentioned a book and then got kicked out of Talkshoe by the software! Paul always has a relevant book to mention!!! The other title we considered for the show is “We don’t want you to be left out!”, which reflects our desire around continuous learning.
The show can be heard here.
The topic today — how do we re-ground ourselves when stress interferes with our roles as trainer-teacher-learners — was inspired by the article Stressed Out! What Can Teachers Do About It? On the call were Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl and Diane Huckabay. We deviated into the topic of staying organized, since being unorganized can lead to stress, and eventually got back to specific topics in the article itself.
