On the call were Paul Signorelli (our backup host), Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Jodie Borgerding.  Today’s topic was dealing with unexpected changes in our training set-up.  It was unexpectedly lively!  You can listen to the show here.


By the way, Maurice Coleman, Paul and Jill gave a one-hour webinar earlier this week entitled “Oops Embracing Training Failures and Learning From Them.”  We talked about problems that a trainer might experience and how to mitigate them, as well as tips for learners.  (By the way, as a trainer, you might listen to those tips for learners and use that information to help you provide tips to keep your learners on track.)  The video is below.

Thanks to Aaron Blumberg at SWFLN for arranging the webinar. Thanks, too, to Deb McClain who provided sign language interpretation (ASL).  The webinar is also closed captioned.

mmm…T is for Training number 213 on Friday the 13th!  On the call were Paul Signorelli, Maurice Coleman, and Andrea Snyder.  The gang talked talked about George Couros’ (@gcouros)  eight characteristics of the innovator’s mindset and riffs off of that  theme, which included TTWWADI (That’s The Way We’ve Always Done It).  By the way, TTWWDI is usually not a good answer.

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.

Constraint

Constraint

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.

BC celebrates the 4th annual Book DayFive hours of learning each week?  How hard that can be? Also, do we live in an information age? These are the topics Kate Kosturski, Maurice Coleman, and Paul Signorelli discussed.

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!
