Presentation Pressure

Making Training Shine in Difficult Times


See you on the next episode of T is for Training on Friday Feburary 27th at 2 pm Eastern Time.

When: Friday February 13th (Friday/tomorrow) marks the next recording of T is for Training at 2 pm Eastern Time.  Please dial or voip in and join us on the call/podcast.

What we probably will talk about:

How Can We Teach Others to Change? If librarians are inherently conservative and we FF/Facebook/Twitter/IM/2d Life etc folks are outliers, how can we bring change into our organizations? How can we teach others to be agents of change?

Presentation Pressure: Reference article: This was touched on last show but I believe merits additional discussion.

Active Learning (For The College Classroom:) What lessons or ideas can we incorporate from this article into our own presentations? Source: This is a really detailed article.

If no one has read it, then we will discuss a suggestion of Lori Reed:

Making Training Shine in Difficult Times: Things we can do to make training stand out during tough economic times. How can we be seen as a business partner to the organization rather than “just a trainer.” Ways we can collaborate with other trainers to spread the training wealth.
