As I’m making my way into the last three months of my graduate traineeship and heading off to Library School in September, I decided that now would be a useful time to take up the 23 Things Course. Why now? Well I’m hoping that the reflective practice involved in 23 Things will help me to focus my ideas on what I want to learn in the future and how to make the most of what I have learned as a trainee.
I first heard about 23 Things before starting my traineeship, when I was trying to find out more about the profession and the chance, in particular, to learn more about the shiny toys available on-line sounded like fun! Although I know what’s out there, I’ve never been able to organise myself into giving it a go – now’s my chance and I’m looking forward to sharing the fun with other CPD23-ers!
The Thing I’m most looking forward to…Thing 17 – learning about Prezi and Slideshare!
The Thing that will be most helpful for libschool… Thing 13 – tools for organising references!
The Thing that I will find really useful… Thing 6 – online networks!
The Thing I’ll find the hardest… Thing 15 – even thinking about speaking at a conference is hard! :-p
So there we go, one Thing down, twenty two to go!
