I want to keep on learning...

In the past I have worked as a staff writer for a newspaper. The process of learning about something first-hand, then distilling it into everyday language was something that was totally enjoyable. It was so cool to be continually kinesthetically learning from "the horses mouth," so to speak. Print journalism has reduced its numbers drastically, and jobs are now few and far between. Are there any other vocations you can think of that would let someone actually go out in the field and talk to people and get their story then share it with others? How about jobs that let you learn all the time?

But what does it DO?

Corporate trainers, I need your help. I need to train some colleagues on the capabilities of an software package to prepare them for designing some upgraded features. However, they are not users of the software, so my standard new-user training is not going to cut it. Do you have any tips on how to do this kind of training/education? Any suggestions of training books or websites that can help? [more inside]
