The podcast took almost a month off and there were some exciting things happening around the T is for Training Ranch.

First things first:

We have a new sponsor:  The ALA Learning Round Table, LearnRT, of the American Library Association (ALA).

T is for Training is honored to have a group with a mission  “to provide a thought-provoking resource for those interested in learning and training in libraries” as a show sponsor, joining the LISHost and the Library Society of the World as supporters of the program.

Second:

We recorded four special episodes with some different voices in the training world.

Joining us during the intercession was Robin Hastings (webgoddess) of MRRLSarah Houghton-Jan (aka LibrarianInBlack), Michele Martin, creator of The Bamboo Project blog, and Cliff Landis, Technology Librarian (and futurist/philanthropist)  at Valdosta State (GA) University.

If you have not already done so, have a listen at these thought-provoking interviews.

Third a crowdsourced challenge:

I challenge each member of the T is for Training family to answer these 27 questions (created by your training peers) on your own Blog/Forum/twitterfeed/googledoc and put the link in a reply to the post on the T is for Training Website

(Seriously, do you know how hard it is to get more than a handful of busy trainers together to do anything? )

I will then collate the results as one T is for Training intercession Class Project post on the T is for Training Blog and social networking feeds.
