New podcast episode!

This month we talked about Lori Reed and Paul Signorelli's new book, Workplace Learning and Leadership: a Handbook for Library and Nonprofit Trainers. Lots of good discussion about training and its relationship to instruction.

  1. So…I’m sitting in a hotel room in Orlando just a few hours after the annual American Society for Training & Development (ASTD–thanks for mentioning that wonderful organization) International Conference and Exposition ended, and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful than to have heard your in-depth and spirited discussion of themes Lori and I tackle in “Workplace Learning & Leadership” (http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx?ID=3099). Can’t even begin to tell you how gratified I am that our work inspired that level of thought, reaction, and proposed action. Looking forward to the follow-up you proposed at the end of the episode and to any success your efforts produce for your learners. For those interested in a first-rate book by a cherished colleague who tackles many of the instructional design issues you raised, I want to call attention to Char Booth’s “Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning: Instructional Literacy for Library Educators” (http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx?ID=2896). Reading Char’s book, I felt as if I were reading the product of a three-way conversation between Lori, Char, and me, and I hope that anyone who reads ours will immediately follow up by diving into Char’s book for a wonderfully original take on what all of us ought to be thinking about as we design, deliver, and evaluate learning opportunities.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans in June 2011 for the ALA Annual Conference.
