This was the 9th anniversary of T is for Training! Episode 1 was on September 12, 2008.  We would like YOU to help us celebrate our longevity by contributing reviews of this podcast to iTunes (one of the places this podcast is published).  Leaving a review in iTunes is not as easy as living a review on some other web sites, but it would mean a lot if you would do it.  This site has information (with photos) on how to leave a review.  As Maurice said, be honest. We’re trainers and appreciate feedback, no matter what it is.  Thank you!

On the call were Jodie Borgerding, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, Maurice Coleman, and Mark (high school librarian in Calgary, Canada).  On this show, we talked about the course development work Jill has been doing and what she has learned from it.  Along the way, we talked about live and asynchronous learning, flipped classrooms, engaging learners, and more.  We had a good conversation and a few good laughs!

Our next show will be on Sept. 15 (2 p.m. ET).  We are planning to discuss the content found on the Liberating Structures web site.  Feel free to look at the web site, then join us on the call.

On the call were Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl and a TalkShoe wanderer named Jesse. Maurice and Jill talked about the training topics that are on our minds (e.g., minute pages, screenshots).  We ended by touching on requirements regarding student consumer information.

This was a 36 minute show.

On the call were Kate Kosturski (moderator), Paul Signorelli, Henry Mensch (newbie), Angela Paterek, Diane Huckaby, Jules Shore, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.  We talked about the article, How Constraints Can Stimulate Creative Learning Opportunities, which includes a link to a 5-minute video.  Our stories included ideas of creativity in training, improv classes, and more.

By the way,  when we came up with today’s title, Jules chimed in with (from Only the Good Die Young): “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners have much more fun.” When you are faced with a constraint, you need to be able to smile, laugh, and move forward.

It was a good conversation today and we hope you’ll give it a listen.

On the call were Jodie Borgerding (new to the show!), Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Maurice Coleman. We began by talking about library signage and the recommendation of libraries doing a yearly signage audit.  We then moved to talking about the digital face of the library.

BTW Even though Paul Signorelli was not on the call, we want to toss him some “love” by sharing the photo we used.

Addendum: Jill sent Henderson County Public Library a Twitter message to tell them about their contact page and they fixed it right away!  Thanks, HCPL.

Sometimes it is worth telling someone (or an institution) what you think is obvious, because it may not actually be obvious.

Blog MicrophoneAs a follow-up  to this blog post, Kate Kosturski and Jill Hurst-Wahl talked about podcasts they recommend for summer listening (and those long road trips):

Enjoy and “see” you in two weeks!

Spring flowersWith spring weather back again in the East, on the call were Diane Huckaby, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Maurice Coleman.   Our conversation twas on how to create training (or education) materials that could be reused by others.  The conversation was really rich and fruitful!

We talked briefly about making training materials Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant.

CabbageAndrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl (in chat) and Maurice Coleman talked about the Computers in Libraries Conference, as well as rural librarianship (a.k.a. Andrea’s new position).  They talked about library services, staffing, programming and more.

Andrea is now at the Pioneer Library System with offices in Canandaigua, NY.  Part of the service area includes farm country, where cabbages are grown. (Hence the title of the show and photo.)

For this 200th episode, Maurice Coleman, Kate Kosturski, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Buffy Hamilton.   The four (including Buffy in chat) talked about the history of the program and what has changed in training since 2008.  For example, there have been technology changes since 2008 that have truly impact training/teaching/learning.

At the end of the episode, we talked about the ALA Midwinter conference.  A list of future ALA conference sites is here.

John LewisOn the call were Paul Signorelli, Maurice Coleman, Diane Huckaby, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.  We talked about ALA Midwinter and the role of libraries as a place of facts and reliable information.  Libraries – as an institution – can be community beacons.  You can listen to the show here.

We talked about fake web sites, which can test someone’s information literacy skills such as this and this.

We also talked about if there have been changes in the activity levels in public libraries, since the inauguration.  Maurice noted that they are compiling their January statistics now and hopes to report on them during the next show.

Our 200th episode will be February 17.  We hope more of our T community will come and help celebrate!
