I’ve enjoyed working through the 23 things for Continued Professional Development. I learned about several new technological bells and whistles, including Evernote (which I love!), EndNote (which I’ve downloaded and started learning for my paper due next week!) and Prezi (which I’ve signed up for but haven’t used yet). I’ve enjoyed reviewing some familiar things too, like blogs (especially some new-to-me librarian blogs), Twitter, and Google Calendar. In fact, my Google Calendar post for Thing 8 has become my most visited post since starting this blog last year!
I already have several professional development goals at work that will be part of next spring’s performance review. I’m also in library school, of course, so that’ll be some heavy-duty professional development for the next few semesters!
I’d recommend the CPD 23 blog to anyone in the field who’s interested in being exposed to additional technologies. It’s been a relaxed way to learn some new things and review old things in the context of librarianship.
