Catching up with CPD23

A couple of months ago, I heard about a new 23 Things program from a friend and colleague of mine, Bobbi Newman. It's called 23 Things for Professional Development. It's like many 23 Things programs you may have participated in, but has a new twist - rather than being about new technologies and resources you can use, it's geared towards your own personal professional development. I thought that was pretty cool! A different take on the 23 Things concept and something very useful to everyone.

So, I'm participating in 23 Things for Professional Development. Yes, I'm a bit late getting started. (Insert standard 'OMG it's been so crazy at work and at home!' excuse here.) But, that's OK because they built in a 'catch-up' week just for me! Well, not just for me I suppose, but for me and anyone else like me who hasn't got started yet, has fallen behind, or just found out about it. Yay!

Another cool thing about this 23 Things program - it's being run by a group of librarians in Cambridge, England! But, it's for anyone in the world who wants to participate. A worldwide 23 Things program for library folk? I couldn't miss out on that! That's something I'm really looking forward to - learning from library people across the globe.

So this is your early warning - I will be playing catch up with this program this week, so there will be posts every day. Crazy, isn't it! :)

Thing #1 - check!
