Posts Tagged ‘T is for Training’

I have the current pleasure of attending the 2019 ATD International Conference https://atdconference.td.org/ in Washington DC for the next couple of days.

I have some cool new lightweight equipment to record some interviews (which I already have put to good use) and will be sharing some things here as well as on the feed for the show.

Highlights of today include a great presentation from Paul Signorelli, Koko Nakahara, Evert Prius and Amit Nagpal gave a presentation on Implementing Machine Learning and AI in Learning—Global Cases and Best Practices. 

Program highlights:

  • AI and Machine Learning is taking us from the construction industry in Japan, to India, to KLM Cargo in the Netherlands to URI in the United States. A truly global presentation.
  • Fail to Learn. You have to fail to learn. AI is not to replace but enhance the learning experience for the learners. AI does some stuff WITH us not as US.
  • Fact: 46% of job descriptions are obsolete. HR should move from workforce planning to WORK Planning. Need to create or be sure what work is coming in near future.
  • AI will impact ALL types of industries and learning. Even in places where the trainer never thought MY job could be in jeopardy. Change is coming.

Also, I interviewed Paul after the program about his session and then interviewed @HalellyAzulay host of   and author of Employee Development on a Shoestring from ATD Press.    

The interviews will be on this page and on our Talkshoe page soon. 

Looking forward to more interviews and sessions tomorrow.  Follow @tisfortraining or @baldgeekinmd for my updates, or follow the twitter hashtag #ATD2019 for great content

On the call were Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.  We began with this quote:

One challenge with learning—and where most get stuck—is the emotional challenge that results from being confronted with not knowing. Being wrong is typically more comfortable than uncertainty, which is why we have to learn to let go. In whitewater kayaking that may mean literally dropping into something scary in an entirely new way—and remaining open to that experience. With the proper mindset, curiosity is more powerful and certainly more useful than fear. – From “Winning When It Counts“, Spirituality & Health

Topics included:

  • Emotional challenge and learning
  • Learning those auxiliary lessons and not just the topic being taught
  • Failure and learning
  • Teaching through failure
  • And random other topics like the John Green video “Places I’ve Never Been.”

You can listen to the episode here.

Addendum: Andrea found this after we were done recording: A Quick Note On Getting Better At Difficult Things

On the call were Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, Courtney Young, Laura Botts, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.

Talking about what Courtney Young, current ALA president, has learned from her ALA travels thus far. Then the conversation moved onto interesting library spaces, including libraries that are in shopping malls and libraries that have innovation space.

Courtney was asked about the non-book[1] things that she has seen, as she as traveled:

  • Other type of lending programs, e.g., cake pans, art, tools
  • Programs on specific skills, e.g., butchering
  • Spaces for specific portions of the community, e.g., teens

Maurice mentioned the loaning of American Girl dolls through his library.  It was mentioned that you have to consider your community and ensure that the programs (e.g., how to raise roosters) is appropriate.

You can listen to the show here.

The first T is for Training of 2015 (recording) and the participants were Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, Paul Signorell, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Steve Thomas.  The conversation began with discussing:

Boss, Jeff.  “How Smart Learners Stay Smart: 16 Ways to Stay on the Cutting Edge.Forbes.  Nov. 16, 2014.

And continued with discussing the need for professional development and for people to take charge of their professional development activities.  We also discussed the happenings at Harford County Public Library.
