Design your own 23 things programme Niamh Tumelty (@niamhpage) University of Cambridge
„23 Things‟ is a type of training… …which started at the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County (North Carolina, USA) in August 2006.
the PLCMC course aimed… “…to encourage staff to experiment and learn about the new and emerging technologies that are reshaping the context of information on the Internet today”
new and emerging technologies
23 things has been hugely popular… 483 versions had been noted by the PLCMC organisers by November 2011, including: public libraries, university libraries, school libraries, health libraries, archivists, parents, museums, school administrators, teachers… USA, UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Poland, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Australia…
23 things for prof dev (aka cpd23) is the same… …but different
cpd23 in a nutshell “doing for continuing professional development tools what other 23 Things programmes have done for social media and web 2.0”
who was cpd23 for?
23 things in Cambridge • 23 Things@CamMedLib + Follow that… (2010) • 23 Things Cambridge (2010, 2011) + New Professionals Conference • CILIP Career Development Group • University of Sheffield, 2010

highlights Helen Murphy‟s posts are always funny, liberally sprinkled with attractive photos, and have plenty to say about the Things in question.
highlights Nikki was described as “a very interesting and generous blogger”
highlights A lot of personalities shone through…
highlights Several posts discussed issues that are central in current debates about the profession and stirred up plenty of discussion themselves. This one considered the value of professional organisations such as CILIP…
highlights …this one sprang out of disagreements about just what „advocacy‟ means, and how central it is (or isn‟t) to professionalism.
so, did people enjoy cpd23? we asked participants to sum up their cpd23-experience in a six-word story. here are a few of them…
“ I registered, I blogged, I grew always challenged. sometimes overwhelmed. never bored. useful, informative, flexible, enjoyable, quality resource jumped in, learnt loads, shared loads
“ made me do; made me think. a positive, career-focused professional experience sharing begets sharing. everyone wins: result! I feel part of a community
Complaints? “I was slightly disappointed that there was less 'new to me' content. But the new stuff was interesting and I'm using some of it in my work routines.” “Some things were a bit tricky to use because they were filtered at my place of work and I wanted to see how I could use them in a work context, e.g. dropbox and Evernote” “I struggled to keep up-to-date”
so what? why „23 Things‟ for Academic and Special Libraries?
time it to suit you dip in and out make use of small amounts of time take time off when you‟re busy and come back later
contacts and support social media fosters communication, collaboration, learning, understanding, recommendations, current awareness, friendships...
Over to you…..
tips & tricks: participants it‟s not a race engage with other participants: ask for advice, comment on their posts, share your thoughts or don‟t: several people took part „silently‟ by reading and thinking about the Things but not blogging work with colleague or friend to help each other out and keep motivated you don‟t have to like every Thing: keep the good ones and bin the rest.
tips & tricks: organisers use online tools to manage your workflows, organise your material, share ideas, hold meetings and to get help ask for help when you need it embrace the unexpected and the serendipitous do plan, but don‟t try to be perfect
