When: Friday January 30th (Friday) marks the next recording of the next 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:

Do you have any suggestions for a new trainer? I am a new supervisor to student workers at an academic library and would love some pointers. FriendFeed posting: about the question: Suggested from a FF post by Lori Reed.

If librarians are inherently conservative (as I think we are, me included), 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? Original Friend Feed Conversation of Andrew Schuping

ALA Midwinter/CLENE  update from this past weekend’s American Library Association Midwinter meeting.  (Depends on call participants.)

And if that is not enough….

What is Instructional Design: Inspired by a slideshare presentation created by Lauren Pressley,  we will discuss Instructional Design and its impact on training. ( If Laura joins in, we will cover this topic.)

Beth asked in FriendFeed: How do you personally handle it (emotional level per se) when someone you are trying to train or educate about something just doesn’t seem to get it no matter how many ways you come at it. They resist no matter what and rather blame technology than the human part of the equation.

Inspired by a post from Lori Reed:3 Trainer’s Tips to Start the New Year: Let’s discuss what our training tips to other trainers are for the start of the new year.

Peter tapped the hive mind with the question: What distance/virtual learning software do you have experience with and what would you recommend?

See you on the next episode of T is for Training on Friday January 30th at 2 pm Eastern Time.
