ALA Saturday Session: Creating a Culture of Learning

Saturday I gave one of my favorite presentations ever. Previously I’ve given this presentation as a webinar for WebJunction. The session covers the differences between training and learning, why learning is important, and ways you can become a learning organization. My co-presenter was Pat Carterette from the State Library of Georgia. There were some great questions that came out of this session and I’ll be discussing them in posts on this site in the coming weeks.

Do you have ideas about creating a culture of learning? Post them here in the comments.

ALA Preconference Making it Stick: Designing, Delivering & Surviving Presentations

On Friday we had a fabulous audience for the CLENE Round Table‘s preconference session Making it Stick: Designing, Delivering & Surviving Presentations. Presenting with me was Paul Signorelli who I have had the privilege of working with on many projects including a book on leadership in libraries for trainers that should be out just in time for next year’s ALA conference.

The slides from the session are below.
