23 Things for Professional Development

Posted: June 19th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: blogging, learning | Tags: , | 6 Comments »

Given my mantra for the year is “Just Start,” I’ve signed up for 23 Things for Professional Development (or CPD23). It’s a free, self-directed online learning course based on, and expanding upon, the original 23 Things program. I’m looking forward to learning about new tools, and I’m excited to continue my learning & professional development. As is always the case in virtual Libraryland, I’m hoping to ‘meet’ some fun library folk & explore learning together :)

More details from the blog:

23 Things for Professional Development is a free online program open to information professionals at all stages of their career, in all types of role, and anywhere across the world. Inspired by the 23 Things programs for social media, this new program will consist of a mixture of social media “Things” and “Things” to do with professional development. The program starts on 20 June and will run until early October 2011.
Each week the CPD23 blog will be updated with details of the next thing to be explored. Catch up weeks and reflection weeks are built into the program, so it’s not a problem if you’re going to be away for a week or two!

Naturally, the crew are on twitter: @cpd23
And on the book of face here
You can follow the conversation by searching #cpd23 on twitter (and as a tag in the blogosphere)
The list of Things is here
And a Google calender of what/when is here

I’ll be using to blog about my learning & be tweeting as @dpgreen too (shock, horror!)
So, does this sound exciting to you too? Yes?!
Of course it does, and you should join me! Sign up here.

If you’ve signed up, please leave a link to your blog in the comments, or just say hi :)
