It seems to me that people who provide technology training crave opportunities to talk to other trainers. We love to hear what others are doing, to share ideas, to see examples of activities and training resources. I look at the popularity of the Google group Lori Reed recently created for trainers. I think about the excitement and sense of belonging I felt when I first discovered CLENE. Talking training with other trainers…maybe I’m a geek, but I just think it’s fun.
I’m pretty excited about the train-the-trainer webinars we’re going to be doing at MPOW. As MaintainIT’s Library Training Specialist, I provide training, but I also work to get the word out to other trainers about the project. Check out some of the training resources we’ve put on our website: a postcard, handouts, flyers, recipe cards…. More things are being added regularly.
I’m also going to be hosting free monthly webinars for trainers. If you’re interested in learning more about using MaintainIT resources in the training you provide, please attend the August 6th train-the-trainer MaintainIT webinar. It will be one-hour long and will feature training ideas and examples and discussion.
