Time really flies and I’ve realised that I’m having to get ready for the next semester of study, planning what courses we’ll be running in the library for August through to September and deciding on how to implement some staff training – especially in social media applications.
How do you implement social media training for staff that are resistant to using computers in the first place. They use the LMS because they have to but as much as possible will not look at any new technology. My normal reaction is that I won’t push anyone into doing anything that they don’t want to do but management has let it be known that all staff need to be made familiar with the technology and how to use it.
This means finding a way that each individual can accept doing something that they don’t want to. I’m continually surprised that that people will use technology but still be resistant to using the technology or learning about new technology. This is the continuing challenge of convincing people that change and new technology can be a good thing.
