A note from the host…

4748 days ago, the first T is for Training happened. I had an idea to start a podcast for library trainers, since we were usually the lone wolves in our places of work.

It was a pilot show with three friends, Beth, Bobbi and Jennifer, and we talked about 23 Things and learning while playing (remember that?), Active Shooter Training (unfortunately still needed) and a Trainer Bi*ch Session (also still needed.) With show links on Delicio.us *RIP*

Also, the very cool Trainer’s Alphabet was discussed on FriendFeed (RIP) Here is a link to the two August 2008 posts about the pilot show and the Trainer’s Alphabet. August 2008 T is for Training Posts

Unfortunately, those older shows, along with the first 150 episodes or so, are lost in the ether.

If you happen to have any copies of our older shows, drop us a line!

This show as survived MANY changes.

Life changes.

Job Changes.

Support Changes.

But we still try to do something useful every two weeks (most of the time.)

The real first show took place on September 12th, 2008. But the show on August 29th is the first place T is for Training happened.

It has been a long and fun thirteen years and counting.

Thank all (five) of you for listening, and I hope you all continue to support us with your kind words and thoughts.

Also JOIN US on a Thursday night. You know you want to…

T is for Training Podcast Shelf : Lessons Learned While Being a Student

“It’s the things you learn after you know it all that count.” – Coach John Wooden

Rarely do we hear about training from a student’s perspective long after the lessons have been given, and the real “training” has sunk in. This 25-minute podcast is an interview with NBA Star Bill Walton, who learned from one of the best coaches who ever lived, John Wooden.  As a student, what did Walton learn from Wooden? And how did Wooden teach?  And – in trivia – what is Walton’s connection to libraries?

Load this Growth Show podcast on your mobile device, go for a walk, and give it a listen.  (It is available through Soundcloud, iTunes and Google Play.)
