Rob Coers and I met for the first time last year at ILI 2004. What amazed me is how similar our training back grounds are: training public librarians for many years, etc. From that meeting, we began chatting and decided to propose a session on technology training for 2005 and presented “Twenty Technology Training Tips for Trainers” yesterday. I was excited about the idea of two trainers from different parts of the world coming together to share experiences and insights.
What an incredible session it was! With most planning and discussion carried out via IM and other tools, we had not spent too much time practicing together. But I believe our audience was engaged, enriched and will use some of the tips to create dynamic sessions.
