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!
You can listen to the show here.

- 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.

But I tell you what, it was a brilliant list.
Hope you are all having a happy and healthy holiday season and wish you a joyous and successful new year.
We had our last show (our 111th, by the way) “Wishing You A Better Tomorrow” and with the show being taped the day of the Newtown, CT incident. We discussed workplace safety and active shooter situations. A bit of departure from our normal subject matter.
If you just follow this blog and not our twitter feed @tisfortraining you may not know that we have been producing shows pretty much every two weeks throughout the year.
I would like to thank this year’s substitute host Kate K. who always does a fantastic job when she guest hosts the show.
