Staff and Public Technology Training Programs

These excellent examples of library training programs can help you design innovative workshops and plan for training. Some of these were devised for staff training purposes but could be easily adapted for public training, or vice versa. If you need specific lesson plans, handouts, or PowerPoints, read this post for library and nonprofit websites that share their materials for free. If your library has a technology training program or if you know of other great examples, please share in the comments.

It seems sometimes like the best web sites for technology trainers change location every hour. I have trouble locating sites that are persistent and reliable with regular updates and new content. This is a shame, because technology trainers in schools, libraries and community technology centers don’t have time to recreate the wheel every time they teach Introduction to Microsoft Word, when hundreds of colleagues around the world have already written that lesson plan.
