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.

And here are the results as of January 25th, 2010 (there are some pulled from the ALA Learning blog (our fab new sponsor’s blog):
