The T is for Training GngOn the call were Tom Haymes (first timer), Paul Signorelli, Diane Huckabay, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Maurice Coleman.  Our topics was born out of the ShapingEDU face-to-face unconference, which occurred two weeks ago, and that had to shift online due to COVID-19.  How did they rapidly transition from onsite to online learning?

We began with talking about ShapingEDU, then shifted to talking about moving face-to-face campus classes online, and then to impact of bad Internet access.  We covered a lot of ground!

Started up my Bullet Journal at work today - loving the Bullet Journal book @rydercarroll sent for me to test out. @leuchtturm1917 books are pretty great!Tonight we had Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Diane Huckabay (in chat), and Maurice Coleman to talk about the changes that occurred this year.  Maurice started us with an article we had referenced during on Jan. 4, 2019 episode (Top 7 Tips) and we took off from there! From Bullet Journaling to the demise of the Super Shuttle to augmented reality to forced tech upgrades, we covered a lot of ground!

You can listen to this episode on TalkShoe and wherever you get your podcasts.

In 2020, we may record an episode on January 2, if we’ve survived New Year’s.  Otherwise, we will record on January 16 at 9 p.m. ET.

Phoenix bird imageAfter an absence, T is for Training is back!  On the call were Maurice Coleman, Diane Huckabay, Andrea Snyder, Paul Signorelli, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.  We talked about online learning, digital literacy, learning to learn, and learning as you go.  Our library staff need to be able to understand technology basics and then be able to learn in the moment, when necessary.  Near the end, we talked a bit about ransomware, which has been hitting some libraries in the U.S.

Maurice is suggesting that T is for Training record every two weeks on Thursday evenings at 8:30 p.m. ET.   The next one will be on Sept. 26. You can listen to this show on TalkShoe.

The library training, teaching, learning podcast is back in your ear holes. 

Come join the fun TONIGHT at 8:30 pm Eastern on our platform Talkshoe.

T is for Training on Talkshoe.

Think of it as the first day back at school, with new clothes and old friends.

See you then!

On the call were Diane Hackabay, Paul Signorelli and Maurice Coleman. Paul had proposed that the crew explore explore the changing nature of our onsite-online (blended) learning spaces today–and the tech tools that support/encourage the changing nature of those blended spaces.  But where did the conversation meander? Paul provided this blog post to kick off the conversation.

Dictionary entry for learning by Nick Youngson, CC BY-SA 3.0On the show today were Andrea Snyder, Diane Huckabay, Paul Signorelli, and Maurice Coleman, who discussed a recent article by Terry Heick for TeachThought, entitled “44 Alternatives to ‘What’d You Learn in School Today?‘”

Among the items discussed were:

  • What sort of things we do to follow-up with unsatisfied learners.
  • Ways we ask questions that engage learners as co-conspirators in the learning process.
  • Difficult questions we can ask at the end of a session to gauge where we were successful and where we could have been better as learning facilitators.
  • Questions we can ask that inspire learners to apply what they have learned during the time they spend with us.

You can listen to the entire episode on TalkShoe.  Our next show will be on March 1, 2 p.m. ET. All are welcome to join in.  Details for doing do are on the T is for Training website.

[Regular Host Note:  So, there are two shows recorded, and Talkshoe in its infinite wisdom saved them both.  If you click the arrow in the Talkshoe player on the site, you can play the second “experimental” episode.  I think it is an auditory house of horrors. YMMV.  Jill, Paul and Diane deserve full medals of heroism for even trying to keep up with the multiple technical glitches that happened.]   

WELL!

We recorded a show, or so we thought.  What you will hear is a 38 second clip38 second clip from Paul Signorelli, who thought he was able to restart the recording. But NO!  (Oh, TalkShoe, your new platform needs improvements.)

And the fact that you can’t hear our conversation is a good thing.  The sound was horrible with both an echo and what sounded like “wind”.  (Thank you, TalkShoe.)

In the portion that you cannot year,  Diane Huckabay, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli discussed the article:

Laura Reynolds, “20 Ways to Provide Effective Feedback for Learning,” TeachThought, 12/6/2018.

We talked primarily about giving feedback to learners. We acknowledged that when feedback is connected with a grade or a performance review, the learner may push back on it.  Diane gave the suggestion of peer feedback, and we had begun talking about how to teach learners to give feedback, when we decided that the sound was too horrid to continue.

As Paul said later, it was the best episode you will never hear!

We plan on coming back to this topic, and article, in two weeks.  We hope you’ll join us then!

 

 

Slide with textOn the call were Diane Huckabay, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Aaron Blumberg, and Maurice Coleman. We talked about the “Top 10 Learning And Development Trends For 2018.” Written in March, we decided to to reflect on whether we had experienced any of the trends this year.  The trends are:

  1. Personalization
  2. Bite-Sized Support Resources
  3. Robust Reports And Analytics
  4. Self-Paced Online Training
  5. Gamification
  6. Collaborative Online Learning Cultures
  7. Responsive Design
  8. Virtual And Augmented Reality
  9. Online Mentorship Programs
  10. Social Learning Experiences

Is there an 11th trend? Paul, proposed understanding that training/learning is both a process and an event.

We touched on all of the trends above and brought in examples from our training and work lives.  Listen to the call on the TalkShoe web site.

Our next T will be on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019 at 2 p.m. ET.

Happy New Year!

Nametag where you can write your preferred pronouns.

First you should know that this episode starts about 5 minutes into the recording.  So fast forward to the five-minute mark.  (We’re still not used to the upgrades that TalkShoe did this year….and we’re technology people.)

On the call were Diane Huckabay, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, and Maurice Coleman.  Maurice told us briefly about the MDLIBTECH one-day event (MD Tech Connect / #MDtechconnect2018) he had just attended at the Universities at Shady Grove.  The keynote speaker was Matthew Reidsma, who has written several articles and books, including “Algorithmic Bias in Library Discovery Systems.” This launched us into a discussion about how to eliminate bias in our training sessions. Our T is for Training started and ended on that topic (eliminate bias in our training ).  In the middle we talked about the adverse affect social media can have on use when parts of our past resurface and affect what we are doing today. The phrase “the past is the present” was used several times, as we acknowledged that who we were in the past (and what we said or did) represents who were are today.  In terms of that and in fighting bias in training sessions, we all noted that “it is really hard.”

This was an important conversation for us, because it acknowledged places where we need to be more thoughtful and where we know we will make mistakes.  You can  hear us thinking, struggling, and striving.

Our next T is for Training will be on December 21 and it will be our last for 2018.  We hope you’ll join us!


A black and white cat on a book shelf.

On Nov. 9, Maurice Coleman, Diane Huckabay, and Paul Signorelli talked about the KQED article “20 Tips to Help De-escalate Interactions With Anxious or Defiant Students” and of course the conversation developed from there!

Yes, there was a guest cat on this episode!
