Join us for the next NCompass Live: “23 Things: The Next Generation”, on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, 10:00am – 11:00am CT.
Description: The 23 Things concept is familiar to most of us in the library world. Some have tried it out, some have tried a version of it, some still have doubts about whether it works, and some think it’s over. Well, we’re here to tell you, it’s still going strong! Nebraska’s state-wide lifelong learning program, Nebraska Learns 2.0, started as a 16 week program in 2008-2009. The original program was so popular it has continued as an ongoing program, with one new Thing offered each month since April 2009. Starting in February 2012, a BookThing was added to the program. Program organizers Christa Burns and Michael Sauers will talk about the process they have laid out over the past few years, how they’ve responded to participant feedback, and how the program became what it is today. They will also show other current examples of self-directed online learning programs, such as Boston Public Library’s Learning for Life Online and the UK-based 23 Things for Professional Development.
