Talkshoe has changed lots of things about the site, including:

The interface is completely refreshed.  You should take a look before you join us again.  (Direct link to the T is for Training page.)

There is a new number to call into the show  
605-562-0444
Same Call ID: 24719

You can now ONLY stream episodes of the show back to January 2015.   Episodes previous to that were lost in the great Talkshoe Server Fail of 2018.

I will be working on a way to get downloads of the episode up as soon after the show as possible.

Follow the show @tisfortraining for more info.

Thanks.

On the call were Maurice Coleman, Clark Quinn, and Paul Signorelli, for a discussion centered on Clark’s wonderfully stimulating new book (from ATD Press) Millennials, Goldfish & Other Training Misconceptions: Debunking Learning Myths and Superstitions.

Clark talked about the process of writing the book at the request of ATD Senior Community of Practice Manager Justin Brusino (and why Clark originally wanted to call the book Dr. Quinn’s Emporium of Learning Myths); described what he learned from researching and writing the book (including what we actually know about the attention span of goldfish); offered insights into a variety of the learning myths and superstitions he explored in an attempt to help us better serve those we assist through our training-teaching-learning-doing efforts; and kept us entertained and interested in applying what we are learning from his work.

The resources mentioned during the program were rich and varied, and have been documented in a separate post on this T is for Training site.

Group at ALAOn the post ALA and post Fourth of July call were Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli. Our topic was:

Conferences (first half of 2018): What Are We Hearing, What Are the Trends We’re Seeing, and What Does All of That Mean for Those We Serve Through Training-Teaching-Learning-Doing?

Okay…so that is where we started, but we quickly wandered:

  • Social awareness issues
  • Responding to bullying, etc.
  • ALA panel on podcasting (So You Want to Podcast…)
  • The conference after the conference (a.k.a. networking at social events)
  • Micro-networking
  • Artificial intelligence

The panel from “So You Want to Podcast…” was (from the ALA web site):

  • Sara Benson, host of Copyright Chat, a podcast dedicated to discussing important copyright matters. She is a copyright librarian, attorney, and assistant professor at University of Illinois Library in Urbana-Champaign.
  • Maurice Coleman hosts the longest-running library training and presentation podcast T Is for Training. He is technical trainer at Harford County Public Library in Maryland. For 25 years he has facilitated live and virtual workshops and learning opportunities across the country. He was named a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in 2010.
  • Angela Ocana, co-host of the comic and manga fandom podcast One Panel Later, is a teen services supervisor with Eugene Library in Oregon. She is an American Library Association Emerging Leader, California Library Association Teen Librarian of the Year, and contributes to No Flying No Tights.
  • Steve Thomas is host and producer of the Circulating Ideas podcast, which facilitates conversations about the innovative people and ideas allowing libraries to thrive in the 21st century. He is a branch manager at Gwinnett County Public Library in metro Atlanta, where he does another podcast for the staff, Flip the Library.

The show was 55 minutes. Be sure to give it a listen (and a review on your podcast-delivery site).

Statue of Sisyphus and a rockOn the call were Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli.  We discussed Google.

After you’ve listened to this show, set your calendar for our next show on July 6, after the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans.

 

 

 

 

Cat HerdersThis week we were joined by Christie Ward, who is one of Paul’s ATD (Association for Talent Development) colleagues.  Also on the call were Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, and Maurice Coleman.  Maurice interviewed Christie about her work, her association involvement, and her thoughts about delivering keynotes.  Christie did a wonderful job talking about the difference between delivering versus facilitating.  We ended the conversation talking about artificial intelligence (IA), augmented reality (AR), and the fourth industrial revolution.

In talking about how she collects information prior to delivering a workshop or speech for a client, some of the questions she uses are:

  • What is it in your workplace environment that is helping or hindering your performance?
  • What technology in your workplace helps or hinders your performance?

In her coaching work, she often asks:

  • What do you do when you lose track of time?  This is a great question to discover someone’s passions and to understand if those passions relate to a person’s work.

At the end, Maurice reminded us that each person wants to be seen as smart, important, and significant. As trainers-teachers-speakers, part of our work is to help our participants feel that.

The entire episode is available on TalkShoe.

Resources:

Yes, we talked for 70 minutes and ended hearing that the older episodes (pre-2015) are no longer on the TalkShoe platform.  They are, however, still available through Apple iTunes.  We’ll post more information on how to get to those older episodes.

The path aheadMike Taylor, Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Andrea Snyder, Henry Mensch, Jay Turner, and Paul Signorelli. were today’s show.  This was Mike’s first T is for Training! We talked about how we apply learning after a conference, which was suggested by Paul based on a recent blog post.  We talked about a number of things, which this list of questions captures:

  • How do we synthesize what we learn at an event?
  • How do we share what we have learned? What is our sharing process?
  • How do we make connections between those that we met at one event with people at another?
  • Can you create time after the event, and before heading back to work, to synthesize your learning?
  • If you go to several conferences in a row, do you see several themes popping up over-and-over again?
  • How do we select which conferences to attend?
  • How do we let our learning breathe?

Near the end, we got reflective and very meta!  We hope you enjoying listening to this very lively episode.

Our next shows will be on May 25, then June 8. We will not have a show on June 22 due to the ALA Annual Conference.

It was just Maurice Coleman and Jill Hurst-Wahl, and early on it became a love-fest about the VISTA Collaboratory,which is in the Carlson Library at the University of Rochester (NY). (Photos are below.) We also talked about what’s going on at Maurice’s workplace and had an extended conversation about Google Expeditions Kits.  Along the way, Jill told the story about how she and Maurice met, which she also told on this week’s Library Pros Podcast.  This was definitely a technology-focused conversation.  Listen to the episode on TalkShoe.

Swamp ReflectionOn the call were Diane Huckabay, Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder and Paul Signorelli.  Their conversation used Deborah Farmer Kris’s KQED Mind/Shift article “5 Strategies to Demystify the Learning Process for Struggling Students” as a jumping off point for a conversation about “Using Our Brains to Help Our Students.”  Resources from the call are in a separate blog post.
