E304: Embracing Training Failures & Learning From Them

Jill Hurst-Wahl, Director, MS in Library & Info. Science Program, School of Information Studies, Syracuse University
Maurice D. Coleman, Technical Trainer, Harford County Public Library Host, T is for Training
Topher Lawton, Librarian for Sciences & Research Data Support, Old Dominion University

Panelists discuss real-world common and unusual training mishaps and pitfalls.They emphasize ways they mitigated those situations and what they implemented to ensure that the same challenges would not happen again in the library, off-site, and online. Get a checklist designed to help any trainer/teacher/learner prepare for and cope with failures that occur in the learning process. Topics include how to stay one step ahead of your learners, what helps to stay calm as things are falling to pieces, and when to call in the cavalry. Bring your questions and examples of times when things didn’t go all that well for you and your learners so you can leave with concrete strategies to implement as you prepare your next learning session.
