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
- Emotional challenge and learnng
- 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 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.
- Library Labyrinths Help Students Find Their Way to Calm
- The Harford County Public Library Innovation Lab @ Abingdon Library
- Check These Out at the Library: Blacksmithing, Bowling, Butchering

 As Andrea mentioned, books are a container. Information comes in a variety of containers.
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:
