(Republished from The CSTD Website)
CSTD Québec is proud to announce the launching of its book club: a new series of events where we invite a distinguished author to deliver a brief presentation of their book that discusses hot topics that have a tremendous impact on the T&D industry. We then open the floor to debate the ideas and concepts brought forward in the book.
Our first author is Kristina Schneider, a Montrealer whose first book, Edublogging: A Qualitative Study of Training and Development Bloggers, has been well received by the educational community since its March 2010 release. Painting a unique portrait of five bloggers who post about instructional design and training issues, Kristina tackles the key phenomena of motivation, writing style, community building and other general practices that define the blogging professional. She also provides insight on how training and development professionals can take advantage of the blogosphere and defines the edublogger. Kristina continues to write about edublogging by; you guessed it, blogging about it. You can follow her discourses http://edublogging.com/.
Kristina brings over ten years of professional training and development expertise to the table. Currently, she is the Director of Operations at Aviation Strategies International (ASI), a highly-regarded Montreal-based aviation management consulting and training firm. She is also pursuing her doctoral studies, focusing on knowledge transfer and professional communities of practice.
To prepare You do not need to read the book to enjoy the book debate. However, you will get more out of this session if you do.
Date and time: 19 October 2010 · 18:00 – 20:00
Location: BDC Building · 800 René-Levesque West, 2nd floor, Room 250, Montreal, QC

"Research and publications such as Kristina Schneider has advanced here, are vital. To study the affordances of blogs – content creation and social interaction – is in a sense to study social media in general."
– George Siemens
