[Or…Training is an Art…]
- Define Business Outcomes
- Design the Complete Experience
- Deliver for Application
- Drive Learning Transfer
- Deploy Performance Support
- Document Results
One of the problems discussed was “learning scrap”, which is when training participants don’t use what they learn. (Learning scraps are like food scraps.) We also talked about how we might assess training.
The group then talked about creativity, Prince, and making training better. This led to a conversation on the art of training.
And somehow we ended with a free flowing conversation including an injury flow chart!

- Revolutionize Learning & Development: Performance and Innovation Strategy for the Information Age
Today’s topic is described as “I hate you, now go away” or “How to engage your staff and public in lifelong learning.” Perhaps a better title might be “inspiration time.” On the call were Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Andrea Snyder, Kate Kosturski, Megan Johnson, and Jennifer Wright.

Paul Signorelli and Maurice Coleman started talking about the Meet the Modern Learner, which morphed into meet the modern library staff who both train/teach/learn and organize information. They then talked about how our customers have forced change by being mobile like staff, needing information on demand, open collaboration and being empowered to do so. To listen to the show, go here.
On the call was Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, Kate Kosturski and Jill Hurst-Wahl. Both Maurice and Jill had attended the Computers in Libraries Conference last week. Kate and Andrea are past participants. They all discussed the conference, number of participants, what has changed in the conference, what changes they would like to see, ideas about keynote speakers, and more. The show can be heard here.
3-21-16 Update: The Talk is now up at T is for Training. Download the podcast of the talk here
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.
