Today we talked about:

Computers In Libraries 2009 Wrap Up and Down:

Recap: We loved the lobbycon/carpetcon/tablecon informal sessions, wifi, power and the great presentations.   For next year, perhaps identifying sessions by basic and advanced courses.  Also, include some hands on tracks, like the preconferences but within the conference.  Also the two folks who were not there were able to use twitter, ustream live, flickr and blog posts to feel that they also got some takeaways from the conference.   Also the live podcast was a big hit.

Pres4Lib: An East Coast Library camp for speakers and trainers being held on June 12th in Princeton NJ.  Looking to become an annual event.  As far as we know it will be the first Presenter/Trainer/Speaker focused library camp!

Recap: We want to see some learning around “Active Learning”  Exercises and modules; BattleDecks; and making sure that the conference is easily able to tag.

Adventures in Library Instruction Podcast A new podcast about instructional development in libraries.

Recap: New podcast specifically focused around libraries and instuctional development.  They started it because there was nothing out there that met his instructional design needs. (We here at T is for Training completely understand.)

Thanks to the folks who thought about, considered, ignored, commented on here or on FriendFeed about the Training Alphabet.  *Julie just added something to the alphabet!*

Not suprisingly there are some letters with some multiple possibilities.  Without further adieu here are the doubles:

A is for attitude or aptitude or ability or adult learner or audience
B is for balance or beginning
C is for community or connected or comprehension or connecting or communication style
D is for devices or digital
E is for entertaining or experiment or engaging
J is for jump into it or joy of learning or jamming or just in time
K is for know when to ask for help or knocking down doors 2 perception or knowledge
L is for lifelong learning or listening
M is for managing expectations or microblog or managing identity or memorable
O is for options or objectives
P is for play or prepared
Q is for question or quality
U is for understanding or usual or unusual arguments
V is for variety or victories (celebrating them)
W is for web 2.x or wisdom
X is for eXperiment or X-Lib 2.0
Y is for you or yes!
Z is for zest or zeal

if you have an opinion about a letter or  this whole little thing, just comment away
or just say..”wow this is so cool..” they are all great,
or anything in between would work.

Just let us know.

Looks like my sample participants can all be around on September 12th at 10 eastern, so that is when I will set up the first taping.
