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)

You might wonder, as you look at the episodes below, what happened to episode 143. With people catching up from spending time at conferences and others on vacation, episode 143 didn’t happen. Which leads us into episode 144 (2014 Intermezzo or something like that), where Maurice Coleman lets folks know that the show is not dead, but that people continue to be on vacation. (The episode is 3 minutes long.)
In episode 145 (Do I Have Broccoli In My Teeth?), the crew discussed personal and life-long learning networks learning styles, and Barbara Fister’s Library Journal article entitled “What PIL [Project Information Literacy] Teaches Us About Lifelong Learning.” On the call were Maurice Coleman, Laura Botts, Paul Signorelli and Steve Thomas.
The show then took a four week hiatus, which bring us to episode 146 ( I’ll Catch Up On My Ironing), where we celebrated T is for Training’s sixth anniversay! On the call were Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli and Diane Huckabay. Maurice began the show by talking about what the very first two shows of T is for Training talked about (and who participated). We then jumped into a conversation about signage, directional challenges and perspectives of the learner and the teacher.
In celebration, below are photos from a few T is for Training get togethers, including when the show has been recorded with people all actually in the same room! And if you’d like to go through the Talkshoe archive of the show, go to http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=24719
