Telling Ain't Training Winners!
celebrate the recent launch of our second edition of Telling
Ain't Training, we ran a contest looking for fun, fresh and
catchy messages from Telling Ain't Training that could be
expressed as bumper stickers. Thank you to all who participated
in our contest. We chose our five favorites and awarded the winners
with autographed copies of Telling Ain't Training - Updated,
Expanded and Enhanced. Here's who won:
Carmine Pollice, GLENTEL Retail Division,
District Sales Manager, Quebec South West: Training

Spirit Aerosystems, Fuselage Segment Training and Employee Development:
Learning - the key to unlocking potential
Sheila MacCallum, Learner-Centred

it; remember it!
Rolf Bender, Sunflower Bakeries: Tell
☹ Train ☺
Ain't Training - Updated, Expanded and Enhanced deliberately
avoids the one-way communication of "telling" trainers
how to be more effective. Instead, it uses an interactive approach
which models the basic message of the book - that is, humans learn
best through active mental engagement. We expect the reader to "do"
something, not just read! Despite its fun and breezy tone, every
concept in the book is solidly backed up by research and includes
an extensive list of references and endnotes to guide readers wishing
to dig more deeply into individual topics of interest. This second
edition adds a new section that addresses technology and learning
conceptually and provides rich examples and pragmatic considerations.
The ultimate goal of the book is to offer the reader an opportunity
to break through learning barriers, to separate learning myth from
research-based findings, and to dispel counterproductive beliefs
and practices that harm the instructional process.

Harold & Erica
is Technology and What Does It Do for Learning?
By Harold D. Stolovitch,
Erica J. Keeps and Marc Rosenberg
Technology has two main definitions. One focuses on artifacts
and tools - from flint-chipping devices for crafting spearheads
to computers and satellites for transmitting messages. The
other is concerned with the application of scientific and
organized knowledge: ergonomics, economics and medicine. Both
have a single aim: To solve practical problems. When we turn
to learning, the practical problem is how to increase the
efficiency and effectiveness of training. In other words,
how we can make it cheap, fast and really good.
Let's delve into this more deeply. You want to be an efficient
and effective training professional. What does each
of these words mean? READ
